The Writing Center is available to help all Westminster College students at every stage of the writing process, from planning written work to writing and revising it. In addition, the Writing Center can help you develop your abilities to locate authoritative sources, cite and quote them responsibly, and write persuasively.
Writing consultants are trained in issues of grammar and punctuation and can teach you how to edit and proofread your paper, but they will not edit or proofread for you. All work done and discussed in the Writing Center will remain confidential and will not be shared without your permission.
The writing consultants are advanced writers who have been trained to help you improve your writing. Consultants represent diverse disciplines such as biology, business, chemistry, economics, education, English, environmental studies, history, music, philosophy, religious studies, and social sciences.
- Please bring your student ID to the Writing Center.
- Allow at least 45 minutes for your consultation and come at least 2 hours before the paper is due. Otherwise, you will not have enough time to receive help on your writing and revise it accordingly.
- Please limit your visits to 1 per day and 2 per week for each assignment.
- Come with a sense of what you would like to work on.
