Writing Center FAQS:
What should I bring?
You don’t need to bring writing if you just want to talk about the assignment or brainstorm. However, it does often help to bring the assignment sheet, if your instructor gave you one.
Can I get my paper proofread?
We won’t proofread or edit your writing for you, but we will point out patterns of error in your writing, teach you points of grammar or style you’d like to learn, and show you how to avoid errors in the future.
Do I need to make an appointment?
No, but you’re welcome to set up an appointment (email email@example.com). Otherwise, just drop in.
What can I get feedback on?
The consultants are trained to provide useful feedback on every stage of the writing process, from brainstorming and organization to sources work, style, editing, grammar and spelling. You can bring in lab reports, business memos, resumes, cover letters, marketing plans, research papers, casualty analyses, portfolio projects, research proposals, technical reports, literature reviews, capstone drafts…any project having to do with writing.
