The Ruth Barton Writing Center

We provide you the opportunity to get feedback on writing at any stage in the process. Our consultants aim to help you clearly express your ideas and strengthen your craft of writing. More than proofreading a paper, we want to help develop your overall abilities as a writer. To schedule an appointment, click here.

The Colorado College Writing Center, located in the Tutt Library Learning Commons, offers students the opportunity to work through their writing process and improve the way they express their ideas by participating in individualized conferences with trained peer consultants and professional staff.

At the Writing Center you can:

  • Receive one-on-one consultation at any stage of any writing project
  • Set up on-going tutorials if you feel you need more consistent help with your writing
  • Use our library of reference books, including citation guides
  • Practice an oral presentation
  • Learn how to become a Writing Center Consultant

Note: The Writing Center provides an opportunity for writers to work through and collaborate on their writing before they submit it for evaluation; it is not a remedial service. While we assist writers at all stages of the writing process, the quality of the final product rests with the writer.
