The Writing Center

Student writers at North Shore are strongly encouraged to explore their creative talents and potential. Through the Writing Center, students are given individualized attention in their areas of strength and interest, whether through a sonnet, a science-fiction story, a research-based essay, or even a novel. Each and every piece of student writing is carefully crafted and edited with excellence in mind. Every year dozens of North Shore students compete locally and nationally, showcasing the fruits of their labor in publications, at dramatic readings, and through competition.
