The Gregory School’s Writing Center, which is directed by English faculty member Jessica Langan-Peck and staffed by highly trained student editors, is a collaborative environment where students across grade levels and disciplines come together to work on the process of writing.
The Center is modeled on collegiate writing centers and strives to provide encouraging, personalized feedback on the planning, outlining, drafting, revising, and polishing of written assignments in order to maximize student progress and self-confidence.
The Writing Center is for all students, Middle and Upper School, and for native and non-native English speakers. The Center sees students from virtually all disciplines and serves both inexperienced and experienced student writers, offering an audience for and response to their written work.
