The Lane Tech Writing Center promotes the development of personal writing style, writing instruction, and the use of writing as a ubiquitous, powerful, and necessary agent of self-advocacy and understanding. Writing is the vehicle which drives self-learning and sustains egalitarian academia and, as such, we are committed to promoting collaborative conversation and constructive learning environments in which writers can thrive. We aim to validate individual voices and, as a result, we are open to students of all different skill levels, backgrounds, and interests. We believe self-development can best be achieved through continual revision, critical inquiry, and reflection. We believe in making a better writer, not better writing - creating a better process, not a better product.
