The Writing Center | We work best when we work with others.

The Florida State University Reading-Writing Center (RWC) is an inclusive resource for FSU students of all majors, programs, and backgrounds. Whether you are working on a paper or larger writing project, the RWC-DS can assist you during any stage of your work process.

In the RWC, our consultants act as practice audiences for ideas and projects. Here are some of the ways we can work with you:  

  • You are working on a research essay that calls for using scholarly articles and synthesizing sources.
  • You are writing a personal statement for different graduate programs.
  • You are writing a piece of fiction, creative nonfiction, and/or poetry and would like feedback.
  • You are putting together a conference article or research presentation.
  • You are revising a thesis or dissertation section.

Whether in person or online, we're committed to providing sessions that help you to express your ideas in academics and beyond.
