The Jones White Writing Center and Indiana Free Library are excited to announce the debut of the Community Writing Center on Wednesday, February 23 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Two females talking to each other. The Community Writing Center will be held in the Community Room at the Indiana Free Library. Volunteers from the Jones White Writing Center will be available for tutoring. Community members—both adults and children—are welcome to bring their writing for one-on-one tutoring and writing feedback.

This unique service is a part of a new partnership with the Jones White Writing Center and the Indiana Free Library.  Our goal with the Community Writing Center is to provide writing support and access to literacy instruction for the broader Indiana community.

Writing tutors can help community members with any stage of the writing process and with any piece of writing. Additionally, tutors can assist with idea generation and brainstorming, responding to drafts and supporting revision, and helping community members edit their work. Our writing support includes but is not limited to: 

  • Poetry, short stories, longer works, autobiography, idea generation
  • Job search documents, including résumé and cover letters
  • Scholarship and application essays for college
  • Personal writing projects
  • Community writing projects
  • Business plans and proposals
  • Homework and reading support for children

The Community Writing Center is a walk-in service. Please bring your writing with you when you come, and we will work to make sure everyone who attends has a tutorial. Tutorials may last anywhere from 10 minutes to 45 minutes, depending on demand. All are welcome to join! Please direct any questions regarding the Community Writing Center to
