Welcome to the Writing Center!

 The Writing Center will be closed during finals week and for the summer break. We will re-open on the first day of the Fall 2019 semester, August 26.

Best of luck with your end-of-semester projects, and have a wonderful summer!


Getting Help from the Writing Center...

If this is your first time accessing our online calendar, click the blue "Register for an account" link, to the left. Then use your Vandal email and new Writing Center account password to log in and make an appointment.

If you are on campus, we encourage you to visit the Writing Center in person. On campus, you can work with tutors one-to-one in 30- or 60-minute tutorial sessions. Sessions can focus on understanding an assignment sheet, planning an essay, developing ideas, revising work through the process of reading a draft together, or addressing other writing concerns.

Please come to appointments prepared with your writing project’s assignment sheet, any notes or drafts you've written toward the project, and a readiness to work with your tutor.

If you cannot come to campus, the Writing Center offers two forms of distance tutoring:

  • Online Tutoring: This uses audio-visual, instant-messaging, and document-sharing tools so you can work with tutors in 30- or 60-minute sessions that are as much like our face-to-face tutorial sessions as possible.

  • e-Tutoring: This is a way for you to get written feedback on drafts. We ask that you submit no more than 8 double-spaced pages (or 2,000 words) at a time, and schedule appointments for 60 minutes. During this time, a tutor will read and respond to your draft, and you will be emailed the feedback soon after the appointment.
