What We Do

The Writing Center offers free writing tutorial services to the Brandeis community. Our staff of graduate student consultants can help you with almost any writing need, including:

  • brainstorming
  • outlining
  • essays
  • short assignments
  • personal statements
  • cover letters

What About Proofreading?

The Writing Center believes that the most effective way to help you proofread is to teach you to do it yourself. Rather than find mistakes for you, we will teach you how to spot common errors and help you to develop useful self-correcting strategies. Our ultimate goal is to help demystify the writing process and aid you in becoming better and more confident writers.


We offer hour-long consultations or 30-minute appointments for shorter writing projects. Depending on consultant availability, we also welcome drop-ins.

In each session, you will receive oral and written feedback from an experienced and supportive graduate student consultant. Each session aims to balance macro-level writing issues (e.g., structure, scope, organization, style) with micro-level concerns (e.g., punctuation, semantics, syntax, vocabulary).

Workshops and Classroom Visits

Each semester we offer standalone workshops. We can also create tailored workshops according to your writing needs.
