About The Cooper Union Center for Writing
The Center for Writing is a primary site of writing instruction at The Cooper Union, available to students for any issues relating to writing, reading, or speaking. Associates work with students at all stages of the writing process-from reading and thinking about an assigned text, to brainstorming ideas, drafting, and revising across a wide range of disciplines and texts. The Center stresses techniques that let students gain control of their material and find ways to get their ideas on the page clearly. Writing Center Associates have extensive experience working with undergraduates pursuing technical and studio-based majors and are familiar with a wide range of learning styles.
