The Tidewater Community Writing Center (TCWC) hopes to bridge the gap between ideas and their written expression.

In partnership with Christopher Newport University’s Alice F. Randall Writing Center and the Center for Community Engagement, we offer support for writers of all backgrounds and abilities, for writers working in professional, creative, or personal capacities.

​As a staff, we are passionate about writing and building connections with other writers to help support each others’ confidence in the practice of writing. For us, the community is the center, and writing forms bonds between us.
