The Writing Center

The Writing Center helps undergraduate and graduate writers at any stage of the writing process—from choosing a topic to drafting and revising—for any writing project. During an appointment, they will talk about your goals, review your writing, and have a conversation about what next steps you might take.

The Writing Center helps writers learn more about everything from thesis statements and organization to grammar and citation methods, though they don’t edit or proofread your work, they will be glad to help you learn to edit and proofread your own writing. The Writing Center is available via Skype and email.
