Writing Center

Writing Center

GSW Writing Center is staffed by undergraduate writing consultants who enjoy writing and reading, and come from majors such as English, History, Political Science, and Accounting. Consultants work with student writers on their writing projects at all stages of the writing process: prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and proofreading. A consultation can be in-person in the Writing Center or through the Writing Center's web platform. An appointment can be made for a minimum of 30 minutes and a maximum of 45 minutes. Currently, appointments (especially in-person) are restricted to 30 minutes. 

Consultants work with other students by using strategies such as asking questions, reading the draft aloud, taking notes, outlining and reverse outlining, and brainstorming to improve assignments. You will discuss what you would like to work on and assess the effectiveness of your writing. The consultations are focused on your unique authorship and ideas, and the consultants work to guide you through the progression of your assignment.

Additional Information

Please arrive on time for your appointment. There is a 5-10 minute window before your appointment will ba marked as missed by your consultant. You will receive an email notification if this occurs. If you miss three appointments, your account will be locked, and you must contact the Writing Center to correct this. 

The Writing Center also accepts walk-ins. However, making an appointment beforehand ensures that there will be a consultant available to assist you. Upon arrival, you will be asked to make an account and an appointment if you do not have one, and then the consultation can begin.
