Writing Center

The RISD Writing Center provides free peer tutoring in writing to all RISD students. Meeting with a tutor is a collaborative process that helps students develop their writing skills in an environment of respect for each individual’s voice, experience, and intention. Trained graduate and undergraduate tutors who are strong writers, readers, and listeners consult on everything from outlining to grammar and mechanics to clarity of argument—serving as a sounding board along the way to effective articulation. All stages and all kinds of writing—from academic research papers to graduate written theses to grant applications—are welcome at the Writing Center.
