The Writing Center

Supporting the broad community of Bucknell writers, including students, faculty and staff.

Exterior of Carnegie Building

Writing is a fundamental part of the Bucknell experience, which is why the staff and peer consultants at the Writing Center are committed to supporting the writing pursuits of Bucknell students, faculty and staff. 

We offer individualized support to help improve your writing — not by telling you what to say but by equipping you with the tools to express your message effectively. 

We also encourage writing as a process of creating and communicating knowledge and seek to generate active learning, primarily by facilitating talk among thoughtful and supportive fellow writers.
