The Writing Center

The Georgetown University Writing Center, located on the second floor of Lauinger Library next to the Midnight Mug Coffee Shop, is a free resource open to all Georgetown students. Graduate and undergraduate students trained in teaching writing are available to assist you at any stage of your writing process. Whether you are just beginning to brainstorm or revising a later stage of your work, our goal is to provide a collaborative center for the discussion of writing. Rather than proofreading papers for grammar or spelling errors, consultants work to help individuals improve their own critical thinking, revision, and editing skills. Learn more
