Writing Center

Swarthmore College's Writing Center, Trotter Hall 120

Located in Trotter 120, the Writing Center is a place to talk about your writing. We welcome writing from any discipline and at any stage of the writing process; we're just as happy to look at your chemistry lab report as your religion essay, and as prepared to work with an outline as a final draft. We welcome writing in foreign languages. In addition, we're happy to help you with non-academic writing, such as personal statements, application essays, and grant proposals.

We are open  Monday–Thursday 1:30-4:30 p.m. (last appointment at 3:15 p.m.) and Monday-Thursday, and Sunday, 7:00–11:30 p.m. (We will take our last appointments and walk-ins for the evening at 10:45 p.m.)

NEW THIS SEMESTER: Drop-in conferences in McCabe Library, Sundays 7:30 pm - 10:00 p.m. Look for the WA at the end of the circulation desk. No appointment necessary.

PLEASE NOTE: Our hours change during finals week. An email update about our operating hours is sent out during the last week of classes.
