Why should I visit the Writing Center?

We are here to help you with any writing – academic, creative, or professional – and we are ready to work with you at any stage in your writing process: brainstorming, drafting, outlining, incorporating research, formatting citations, addressing surface errors, and more.

Do I need an appointment?

No. Walk-ins are welcome. However, we do get busy, so consider making an appointment if you are required by your instructor to visit the Center or if you want to be sure someone is waiting to help you.

Is there anything I should I do before coming to the Writing Center?

Not necessarily; many students visit without having made any preparations. Others find it helpful to gather materials that would help, like research, rubrics, assignment sheets, or lecture notes.

Where is the Writing Center located?

The Writing Center is on the lower level of Lamson. Descend the stairs across from the Information Desk. As you enter the lower level, the cafe is on your right. However, you will turn left and look for us at the end of the long aisle. We are next door to the PASS office.

Will you proofread my paper?

No, but we will help you identify errors, and we will work with you so that you can proofread your own papers.

Can you help me with citations?

Yes. We have plenty of resources available to help you format your work using APA, MLA, ASA, and Chicago style.

How long do conferences usually take?

That depends on the kind of paper you’re working with. However, most conferences take between twenty and sixty minutes.

Can you help me with a science paper?

Yes. We are happy to work with writers from any discipline.

Quotes

“In coversation you can use timing, a look, an inflection. But on the page all you have is commas, dashes, the amount of syllables in a word. When I write, I read everything out loud to get the right rhythm.”
– Fran Lebowitz
