The Bate Center

About Us

The Bate Center believes that to be successful writers, writers must be able to anticipate the effects of their words on readers. The Bate Center is a place where students can share their work-in-progress and talk about their writing with careful readers and experienced writers. Bate Center consultants are committed to helping writers at all stages of the writing process, from generating ideas for a paper to developing and polishing later drafts. We aim to assist writers with specific assignments while also teaching writing strategies that can be applied to future writing projects. Our services are not remedial; rather, they are additional resources for any English 1100 or 1200/2201 student who wishes to become a better writer.
