What do we do?
The Writing Center offers one-on-one writing assistance to writers in any course and at any phase of the writing process. Students can reserve a conference or drop in during open hours. Walk-in clients will be welcomed as time permits on a first-come, first-served basis. Normally held in the Baldwin Center for Learning and Teaching on the first floor of Kanbar Hall and in the H-L Library, conferences are being held online for the Spring 2021 semester.
Information About The Writing Center
Sundays-Thursdays, 6:00-10:00 p.m.
Fridays, 9:00-11:00 a.m. and 1:00-3:00 p.m.
- If at all possible, schedule your appointment early enough that you still have time—at least a day—to revise your draft after the conference.
- Please arrive on time so that you don't lose your slot. If you are more than 10 minutes late, a waiting writer may take your slot.
Tips on How to Have a Successful Conference
- Bring a copy of the assignment with you. You will be asked to upload, or copy-and-paste it into the online appointment platform at the time of your appointment.
- Bring a draft, outline or list of ideas.
- Take charge! Come to the conference with an idea of what you want to work on.
