What We Do 

Writers need feedback from readers to help refine their writing. The Writing Center can give you this feedback. Our tutors will talk with you about your writing to help you:

  • brainstorm ideas

  • clarify main points

  • strengthen logic and support

  • smooth out organization

  • integrate sources and credit them properly

  • fine-tune sentence style

  • learn to proofread

Because we want to help you become a better writer, we won't edit or proofread your paper for you. We will help you learn to revise and edit so you will be better able to catch your own errors and improve your own content, organization, and style.
