Undergraduate Sessions

Undergraduate students are welcome to bring in academic, creative, and professional writing. Writing center consultants can work with students at any stage of the writing process. We recognize that writing is a situated practice that looks different from one subject or discipline to another, and that understanding is the core of our approach. Consultants can help students identify project goals while considering the audience(s) and conventions in their area of study.

You don’t have to be struggling to visit. In fact, consultants can simply be a sounding board or first reader for your ideas. We can help you get started with a project and keep going. We will listen to whatever you have to say about Standard Academic English, writing “rules” and your personal relationship with language, and we will support your decisions about your own voice as a writer. And, of course, we will also help if you have specific questions – or would like suggestions – about the structure, clarity, and flow of a draft assignment or about your (or your professor’s) sentence-level concerns around grammar and punctuation. The final decisions will be yours.

Graduate Sessions

We regularly meet with graduate students working on seminar papers, theses, dissertations, and other long-form projects such as articles for publication. Ideally, these dialogues become a collaboration that includes input from advisers so that consideration is given to both form and content as the project develops. We also frequently work with bilingual and multilingual students at the graduate level, addressing the particular challenges of producing a long manuscript in academic English. We are happy to help with the text and strategic approaches to producing your best written work.
