English Department Writing Resources / Reading Writing Center

Reading Writing Center

The Florida State University Reading-Writing Center and Digital Studio (FSU RWC/DS) offers writing support to all FSU students, including first-year undergraduates, students in all majors, international and other ELL students, CARE students, student athletes,  and graduate students across the disciplines. Such support typically takes three forms: (1) tutoring; (2) workshops; and (3) faculty consultations. In the tutoring context—whether in the RWC or the Digital Studio--tutors act as a practice audience for students’ ideas and writing, helping them develop their writing in many areas. Among them are:

  • Process: tutors focus on students’ process of writing and support students’ composing throughout all facets of that process;
  • Rhetorical awareness: tutors support students’ development of writing expertise in all writing genres and media employed across campus;
  • Reflective Practice: tutors model and encourage habits of reflection that prompt students to be more critically aware of their own writing practices; and
  • Transfer: tutors foster the use of techniques and strategies that students can apply and re-purpose in multiple writing contexts.

In addition, the FSU RWC/DS provides education in both writing theory and practice and tutoring theory and practice for graduate and undergraduate students who wish to become tutors; supports local and national efforts to promote writing in its various genres and media; and facilitates research in writing and tutoring.
