The Writing Center

What goes on at The Writing Center?

We offer in-person writing consultations and online resources for any stage of writing process and craft, such as: brainstorming ideas, strengthening theses, developing thesis support, organizing paragraphs, and refining sentences. We do this by asking a lot of questions, listening, and providing feedback. We don’t edit or proofread, instead we teach you how to correct your patterns of error. Our goal is to help you become a better writer. Consultations are available by drop-in or appointment. Appointments are available bi-weekly, weekly, or as-needed.


Monday – Thursday 10am – 5pm and 7pm – 10pm
Friday 10am – 5pm
Saturday 11am – 5pm
Sunday 1pm – 5pm and 7pm – 10pm
