The Writing Center


The Writing Center can be utilized by all students at all levels to improve their writing and thinking processes across the curriculum. Through individual conferences, the Writing Center focuses on specific topics to support students, faculty and staff.

Students can work with writing consultants on any type of writing project, at any stage of the process. The Writing Center can help with oral presentations, too.

What do writing consultants do?

Writing consultants help writers think critically about their goals and consider how an audience might respond to key points. They do not copyedit or correct papers – rather, writing consultants teach editing strategies. Additionally, writing consultants focus on development, clarity, organization, grammar, and citation.

Working with a writing consultant doesn't guarantee an "A" on a writing assignment, but it helps students to become more successful overall with writing.

How do I set up a consultation, and what can I expect?

Students may walk in to the Writing Center to meet with consultants at any time, or make an appointment with a specific consultant. A typical session lasts 20 minutes, depending on the project. Gather assignment sheets and syllabi to bring along with you, and be prepared to discuss the purpose and audience for your project.

You can also set up a time to meet with the writing consultants by emailing the links below.
