The Writing Center, part of the Harvard College Writing Program, is a place for Harvard undergraduates to get help with any aspect of their writing, from specific assignments to general writing skills. The Writing Center is staffed by trained undergraduate tutors who provide individual conferences to students working on any writing assignment. You don't have to have a finished paper to come for a conference. You can come with ideas, notes, or a draft. To learn more about what we do, please read our answers to frequently asked questions. 

News and Events

The Writing Center will open for Harvard Summer School on June 25.

We are open to all students enrolled in Harvard Summer School courses who seek assistance with course writing assignments.  Our tutors provide help with argument, structure, and clarity. We cannot edit or proofread your work for you. Our job is to help you do the writing and editing yourself.
