Located in the Tiger Learning Commons, the Trinity Writing Center is a free resource available to all students.

The Center’s team of trained writing tutors can help you create outlines from ideas, give you direction in drafting, and help you better understand the editing process. Writers at all skill levels benefit from this kind of editorial input.


We strive to empower Trinity students to become better, more self-sufficient writers by offering one-on-one tutoring for all stages of the writing process. We are driven by the belief that all writers benefit from sharing their work with knowledgeable, caring readers offering positive, constructive responses.
