About the Writing Center

Mission Statement

The Pomona College Writing Center offers free, one-on-one consultations to all students enrolled in Pomona College courses. Our mission is to provide an inclusive and collaborative space for students to talk about their writing projects and processes. We welcome all kinds of writing, including academic, creative, professional, and personal, in all stages of development, from brainstorming to the final draft. Our aim is to center students’ voices and goals as they navigate varying expectations of writing across genres.

The Writing Center is centrally located on the ground floor Smith Campus Center Suite 148, across from the Mail Room and the Living Room.

During the academic year, the Writing Center is open for appointments Sundays through Thursdays in the afternoons and evenings. Students can make an appointment online, by logging into the portal and going to Academics > Writing Center. We also offer drop-in hours from 8 - 10 p.m. on those days, with appointments on a first-come, first-served basis. Students can also stop by in the afternoons and early evening to see if there are appointments available.
