Associate Professor of English
214 Lawrence Center
The writing center serves the entire university community: undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff. We welcome writers from diverse academic disciplines and cultural settings. Our goal is to help visitors to the writing center--either in person or online--become better writers, readers, and critical thinkers. We do this in 30- and/or 60-minute tutorials dedicated to the arduous and inspiring work that writers do.
What you can expect at the writing center:
We encourage you to make use of the writing center as an antidote to procrastination. For example, you could make an appointment the same day you receive an assignment. Bring your assignments with you; we'll consider them with you.
Think of the writing center as a resource for generating text, revising, and getting feedback before papers are at the proofreading stage. It isn't intended to be a last-minute fix-it shop.
Even if you are hesitant, you should give the writing center a try. Many first-time users become regulars.
We are here for all people who need or want to write, at all levels of competence and interest. We look forward to working with you!
We welcome your feedback on any aspect of the writing center's work.
Please feel free to contact Margaret Ervin.
