Why should I care about my writing?

Good writing can help you get a job (cover letters, resumes, writing samples, essay questions), get into school (personal statements and essays), and keep a job (memos, e-mail, newsletters, reports, proposals, case summaries, progress notes, presentations). In your personal life, good writing can help you with letters, journals, self-expression, and the development of your imagination.

Can the Writing Center help me with papers from classes besides my English classes?

Yes!  The Writing Center can benefit students in all levels of writing and in all subjects (biology, nursing, sociology, art, psychology, law enforcement, etc.).  Even the most accomplished novelists need feedback from other people to develop their writing to its fullest.

Who in the Writing Center can help me?

Amanda Pruka and Heidi Thury are the lab assistants who staff the Writing Center during its hours of operation. They are experienced as writers and teachers of writing. Additionally, student tutors put in regular hours, and faculty members occasionally make themselves available to help students in the Writing Center.

What kind of help can I get from the Writing Center?

The Writing Center can help you with anything to do with writing, for example: brainstorming topic ideas, clarifying a thesis, organizing essays, citing sources, reviewing grammar, and editing.
