Our writing consultants do not take over or "fix" your work, but come alongside to help you be a better writer. Our philosophy centers on the process, not a product. We can, however, provide you with tips and techniques for brainstorming, finding a thesis, organizing, adding support, citing correctly, and other writing-related issues. In a writing consultation, the consultant will focus on your goals and use your writing to practice strategies for meeting these goals.
We provide a written record of your visit. Your professors will receive reports periodically if you permit.
Assignment Success Workshops
These workshops are available for professors who will be absent from a class in the near future and feel a workshop would be helpful for a specific assignment coming due. We need at least a week's lead time to prepare and fit the workshop in to our schedule.
Writing Across the Curriculum
The Write Place is a proud supporter of the WAC Journal of Student Writing. Entries into the journal are selected for submission by a student's professor.
