The Saint Mary’s College Writing Center is a teaching and learning resource, staffed by peer tutors, one graduate tutor, and administered by a director who specializes in writing studies. We were founded in the 1970s by a student and initially called the Saint Mary’s Writing Clinic. We are located on the third floor of the Cushwa-Leighton Library and we provide in-person and online tutorials.
