What Do We Offer?

A convenient location in Lamson Library


Support for group writers

In addition to working with writers one-to-one, we can also support writers who are working in a group. Check out our video, created by Laura Hoffman (UG’16): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMjLPY11Xco&feature=youtu.be

Online consultations

If you are an online student or someone who commutes to campus, we offer online writing consultation for your convenience. Please e-mail 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, and our cluster is available to you during any hours that Lamson Library is open.

“I usually do not re-read my papers too thoroughly, but this time we broke it down from paragraph to paragraph. This allowed me to look at smaller sections and maintain my focus.”

“In your writing, be strong, defiant, forbearing. Have a point to make and write to it. Dare to say what you want most to say, and say it as plainly as you can. Whether or not you write well, write bravely.”
– Bill Stout
