Welcome to the Writing Center!

Our staff can work with you at ALL stages of the writing process and on papers in most disciplines. We do not edit, proofread or "fix" papers, we give feedback on bigger things like structure, organization, argument and evidence (although we will point out errors and give mini-lessons on grammar along the way). Our goal is for you to leave with a stronger paper and better writing skills.
