The Taft Writing Center promotes excellence in writing across the curriculum by providing resources to students and teachers. Designed to complement the instruction offered in the classroom, the Center is a place where all writers in the Taft community have the opportunity to receive close personal attention as they develop their writing skills. By working in conference with teachers and peer tutors, writers can both seek counsel on papers in progress and address specific problems that their teachers or other critical observers have identified in their work. In this way, the Center facilitates the effective teaching of writing in all its manifestations by sustaining a conversation about writing among Taft teachers.
