What happens when you contact the Writing Center?

 

You work with a staff member who will help you strengthen your writing.

How can you effectively use the Writing Center?

  • Decide in advance how we can help you become a better writer.
  • Bring your best ideas, outlines, drafts, and assignment sheets.
  • Be flexible and willing to change your ideas. Writing changes our thinking, and thinking changes  our writing.
  • Come early so you will have time to understand specific writing principles and apply them to your paper.

We can help you:

  • understand your assignment
  • get started
  • organize your ideas
  • recognize your specific grammar problems
  • learn how to proofread
  • document your sources
  • find links to library databases
  • assess the Internet

We cannot:

  • tell you what to write
  • proofread your work (We read the paper with you and make suggestions.)
  • evaluate your work and tell you what grade you should make
  • tell you what your reading assignments mean
