Overview

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.

How do I set up a conference?

Students may walk in to the Writing Center to meet with consultants at any time or schedule an appointment.  The Writing Center offers both in-person and remote conferencing via Zoom.  To schedule an appointment, please email NMwritingconsultants@manchester.edu.

Students interested in becoming a writing consultant should apply for the position using Spartan Jobs. They can also contact the Writing Center Coordinator.
