Writing Center GW Logo


The GW Writing Center offers free, peer-based support to students and faculty from across the university. Clients participate in one-on-one sessions with student consultants on their projects at all stages of the writing process. Our conversation-based approach helps clients strengthen their abilities as writers and become stronger editors of their own work.

The center welcomes undergraduate and graduate students at all levels, from all schools, as well as faculty seeking feedback on assignments and their own writing projects.



COVID-19 Update

Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 situation, GW has moved nearly all courses online for the fall 2020 semester. The Writing Center will continue to offer our services virtually, but our physical office on Foggy Bottom will be closed. If you need to reach our office staff please reach out via our Front Desk Webex Chat (during regular business hours) or by email at [email protected]. For the latest COVID-19 information, please visit the CCAS website.

"Through revising my writing with the consultants, I could effectively and efficiently practice my speaking, listening, writing and reading skills at the same time. I gained lots of confidence and a sense of achievement. Now, I love writing because it shapes precisely how I express myself."
