Resources for Writers

About the Writing Center

The Writing Center offers one-on-one tutorials with trained writing consultants to help you master the skills of college-level writing and grow as a writer. Undergraduate students on-campus can meet for face-to-face consultations in our office in the library (LRC 131). Degree completion, graduate, and any other students who cannot make it to campus can sign up for an online tutoring session.

We can help you understand what's not working in your paragraphs and why, but we are NOT a fix-it shop or a proofreading or editing service. We do not claim to improve anyone’s grades. Our goal is to help you become a better writer.

We encourage students to schedule an appointment well before assignments are due so that we can see multiple drafts of a document in process. This practice of revision can improve the writer's performance on academic assignments.

Writing Consultants work personally with clients at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming a topic to researching to grammar revision. 

For more information or if you have trouble scheduling an appointment, contact Writing Center Director Jonathan Himes.
