Mission Statement

Writing Central offers journalism and communication students peer-to-peer writing support through one-on-one coaching sessions. We believe that writing is a powerful tool and that everyone has the potential to become a stronger writer. We also believe the writing process has benefits beyond the written word and that it helps visual/multimedia journalists and communicators as well.
