What Do We Offer?

Online consultations

If you are an online student or someone who commutes to campus, we offer online writing consultation for your convenience. Please email director Jane Weber, jlweber@plymouth.edu, to learn more.

Weekly appointments

You may set up a weekly appointment with any writing consultant. You can cancel if you need to and start up again when it is convenient for you if that time is still available.

Resumé guides

Come use any of our resumé guides as a reference. You can also work on your resumé or cover letter with a consultant.

Sample “A” papers

Some professors have had students submit papers for which they received an A. They are here for you to look at as examples. Most sample papers cannot leave the Writing Center, but feel free to come in any time to peruse them.

Writing handbooks and style guides

A quiet place to work on writing

Feel free to come to the Writing Center, even if you aren’t looking for a consultation. Sit down at one of the computers in our cluster, or grab a seat at a table or on one of the couches. Make yourself comfortable and please let us know if we can be of any assistance.

Computer cluster

We have several computers and a printer, so you have access to the Web and word processing right in the Center.

“I really liked that he did not just correct my paper.  He asked me what it was that I thought needed fixing, and we went from there.”

“When you are writing you must assume that the next thing you put down belongs not for reasons of logic, good sense, or narrative developments, but because you put it there.”
