Opening for Fall 2017

We’re extremely excited to open our new space in the Hartford Times Building this fall! The Writing Center will be located in room 218 of the new building, right in the middle of everything. You can drop in to chat with us about any kind of writing at whatever stage of the writing process you’re at, or you can make an appointment by visiting to reserve an hour for yourself.

The center opens on September 11th, and we’ll be here for you this whole semester. We look forward to seeing your writing!

Closed for the Summer!

What a semester!

We had a lot of excellent conversations about writing at the center this semester, and I hope you were able to discuss your paper with us. The Writing Center closes over the summer, and we’ll be back in the Fall, on September 11th.

Check in with us soon to see some photos of our center!
