The Writing Desk In Rolvaag Library

Academic Writing Support

The Writing Desk helps St. Olaf students write clearly, critically, and convincingly to effectively engage in academic conversations. Tutors listen, ask questions, and provide feedback. Writing sessions typically focus on brainstorming ideas, strengthening arguments, developing support, organizing paragraphs, and refining sentences. Writing tutors do not edit or proofread; instead, they teach students how to do this for themselves. We don’t just want you to have a stronger paper; we want you to be a stronger writer.

Tutoring is available by drop-in or appointment. Appointments are available bi-weekly, weekly, or as needed. Click here to meet our tutoring staff or click here to make an appointment.
