What is a writing center? A writing center is a platform for writers in all stages of their writing journey to learn, improve and grow. Writing centers offer a range of services, including writing courses, workshops, mentoring, coaching, editing and proofreading. Why writing? Writing empowers the writer. It is both an escape from and a bridge to reality, simultaneously creating new worlds and making better sense of ours. Writing is a vehicle of change, shaping perspective and building a sense of actualization. Throughout history, writers have influenced thinking and challenged societal norms, building a better world by exploring the human condition. Apart from its use for self-expression, writing is also an essential professional skill. Strong writing skills help you achieve your goals – whether they are higher education, internships, job placements or career advancement. The acquisition of writing skills fosters analytical and critical thinking, both invaluable in today’s dynamic environment. For whom?
