Writing Center Mission

  • The most important thing we do at the Writing Center is to listen.
  • Having listened, we do nothing more or less than to ask questions, offer suggestions, take suggestions, and listen further still, together.
  • We recognize that all of us—as writers--bring a different set of experiences and expectations to our writing.
  • We work with and for any member of the Creighton community, broadly understood, who seeks a dialogue about his or her writing.
  • Our purpose is one of sharing and collaborative service.
  • We practice cura personalis. In our case, “care for the whole writer.”
  • We recognize that the Writing Center is a “sacred space,” and that the writers sharing such a space are making a brave step.
  • We welcome all writers “as they are” and “where they are,” and look forward to seeing writers progress, on their own terms, to the places they want to be.
