Student Writing Support (SWS)

writing

The Center for Writing’s Student Writing Support program helps writers develop confidence and effective writing strategies through collaborative one-to-one writing consultations, both face-to-face and online.

Our writing consultants listen to writers, read and respond to their written work, pose questions that help them clarify and articulate their ideas, and affirm the experiences and abilities they bring to their writing. We value all writers and their life experiences, worldviews, and languages, and we seek to provide a supportive space for all writers to share and develop their voices.

Student Testimonial

“FANTASTIC! She gave me excellent, pointed feedback that I can easily incorporate into my next paper. Her suggestions were very straightforward, and she was respectful of my own individual writing style and how to make changes the instructor is looking for, but still keep my ‘own voice.’”
