The Writing Center

The VCUarts Qatar Writing Center offers one-on-one writing support for students in any discipline ranging from preliminary planning through all the steps of the writing process, including help in using English as a second language.

Experienced writing tutors are available to help students develop ideas for papers, to teach organization of clear and concise thought and to aid in choosing a writing style to appeal to the intended audience.

Because writing clarifies thinking, the mission of the VCUarts Qatar Writing Center is to help all VCUarts Qatar students use English to:

  • clarify their thinking,
  • organize their thoughts, and
  • convey their thoughts appropriately to an audience.
