The Writing Studio opens

Tuesday, August 30 for the Fall Semester. 

The Writing Studio provides free writing support at any stage of the writing process. Writers at all levels and in all majors can benefit from visiting the Writing Studio.

We will work with you on many kinds of writing projects and tasks, including brainstorming, crafting a thesis statement, tackling your senior thesis, revising a biology lab report, and improving your grammar and punctuation.

We can help you with any project that involves communicating ideas to an audience. While that includes essays and other traditional writing assignments, we can also help with slide presentations, videos and screencasts, poster presentations, interview questions, infographics, speeches and podcasts, and other multimodal projects.

We also help with resumes, cover letters, personal essays for scholarships and graduate school, and much more.
