Get Free One-on-One Writing Help in All Subjects
Improve your writing skills. Get feedback on your projects. Overcome writer’s block.
Our mission is simple: To offer free writing support for students at all stages of the writing process and to help them improve their writing skills.
We can assist with a variety of writing, including:
- Essays/writing assignments in all subjects
- Personal statements for scholarships and college application
- Resumes and cover letters
- Other writing needs
Students come to their appointments prepared with the writing assignment promptly, and ready to discuss their ideas, questions, or drafts.
What We Do
We love helping students to engage in the writing process by encouraging them to take a deeper look at their writing.
We help students:
- learn how to outline, draft, and proofread their writing
- understand how to format their paper, cite their sources correctly, and how to better create polished academic writing
Our goal is to help students to improve themselves as writers.
What We Don’t Do
We don’t write, edit, or grade students’ papers for them.
What We Recommend
The best way to take advantage of the Writing Center is to come early and often. Many successful students make appointments soon after getting an assignment and, again, throughout the writing process.
Our ultimate goal is to empower your success and to help you become a self-reliant writer.Anna ha, writing center
