The Marks Family Writing Center was established in 2003 to provide writing support to Penn students and faculty across the disciplines. Thanks to the generous support of Howard Marks, the Center is open to Penn students 6 days a week. The Writing Center is staffed by friendly, well-qualified peer and faculty writing specialists who enjoy working with other writers, from freshmen to doctoral candidates. Whatever your writing need--from puzzling out an assignment or a professor's feedback to brainstorming, planning, drafting, researching, and polishing a draft--our specialists are ready to help. Along with improving whatever project you bring to us, our aim is to expand your own knowledge of the craft so that you exit Penn a confident, skillful writer.
