The Writing Center

The Writing Center offers free and friendly support for writers at any level with any type of project.

From generating your first ideas to providing a fresh pair of eyes on an almost-final draft – and all points in between – our mentors are here to talk about your writing and thinking by discussing ways of moving forward from wherever you are in the process.

It doesn't matter if your degree program focuses on the sciences or liberal arts; all writers are welcome at the Writing Center. All of us are writers, and we all face challenges and dilemmas as we write and think. "Talking it out," discussing concerns and puzzling out plans for revision are expected parts of writing well that benefit everyone.

To make the most of our time together, we ask that you bring:

  • everything related to the project at hand (the syllabus, the assignment, related notes and drafts, pertinent texts)
  • any suggestions an instructor or reader has made on your work
  • realistic expectations of what we can accomplish in the time you've chosen to work with a mentor

The more you know about the kinds of help and advice you're looking for, the more we can accomplish in a session.

Writing mentors are available

Most mentoring sessions last between 30 minutes to an hour. No appointment is necessary, although appointments are available and strongly recommended.

Stop in, call, or check our schedule for more information.

In addition to our one-on-one mentoring, we have other writing resources available for faculty and students.
