The Center for Writing is a welcoming space where Norwich’s writers—students, faculty, and staff—come together to talk about writing.
Our mission at the Center for Writing is to create a culture of writing here at Norwich. What exactly does that mean? It means we acknowledge how much writing we all do on a daily basis in professional settings, digital environments, and within our communities.

We also support Norwich faculty who want to integrate more writing into their courses or refine their existing writing assignments, exercises, and feedback. And, because faculty are writers too, we provide the space and support for faculty writing groups.
