Helping Students at Any Stage of the Writing Process

  • Prewriting—coming up with a great topic or research idea
  • Planning—creating an organizational plan for a project
  • Drafting—guiding students during the drafting process
  • Revising—answering specific questions about the student’s paper

To Make the Most of Your Visit, Bring:

  • Specific goals for what you want to accomplish in your session
  • The syllabus or assignment requirements and ideas and questions about your writing
  • Necessary textbooks or reference materials and something to write with

Suggestions for Students:

  • Manage your time – visit the Writing Center or make appointments early in your writing process. Give yourself enough time to revise your work and perform proofreading and final copy editing.
