This paper begins by describing the competing priorities and problems its author/educator encounters when trying to take care of business in the writing center. The paper moves from discussing her firsthand experiences as a scholar interested in both professional writing and the writing center to a study she and a friend did about tutor perceptions of "good business writing." It concludes with a possible solution or two perceived from the other side of the fence--that is, from the colleges over in the school of business. Through a survey of perspectives, the paper seeks to structure some of the questions that inform the potentially competing priorities of the business writer and the writing tutor. (NKA)
