The Writing Center

A Collective Effort

The Writing Center

We believe that writing is not a process that occurs in isolation or by a sole individual. Instead, writing is a collective effort that students, instructors, and Writing Consultants engage in together. We work toward this goal with student writers and faculty.

All writers benefit from another set of eyes, since it's difficult for all of us to read our own writing critically. Since your reader can't be inside your head, knowing what you think, why you think it, how you think it, and how it's connected to another idea, you have to be very explicit about all these elements of your writing. The Writing Center's consultants are trained to recognize the cloudier parts of your writing and to offer practical and honest advice to you about how to remedy those problems.

For questions regarding the Writing Center, please contact Brenda Boyle.
