The Writing Center is here to help any Fresno State Student with any writing you're working on. Please stop by and meet us or feel free to call 278-0334.
We can help you:
Understand your assignment What are you being asked to do?
Get started We can brainstorm with you, generate lots of possibilities, and start writing.
Make changes Have writing done? Bring it in. Our tutors are trained to ask questions and look at structure in ways that will help you see what you've got so you can make choices about what to add, cut, or move around.
With grammar Worried about your sentences, punctuation, and formatting? Come on in. We won't go through your paper with a red pen. We'll look for patterns. You may have 20 mistakes and 15 of them are the same mistake over and over. We'll show you that, explain the rule, do some practice, and you'll be better prepared to self-correct that error in the future.
With 3 services:
Small Writing Groups A 1 unit course you take where you meet in a small group all semester. This group gives you no homework, you just work on writing already assigned to you by your other courses. More info here.
One-on-One Tutoring Feel free to just drop in or make an Appointment (278-0334) to see a tutor one-on-one for 25 minutes to an hour. More info here.
Online Tutoring Send us your draft via email, we'll give it to a tutor who will read it carefully and send you the questions and thoughts they had as they read it. It usually takes us two business days to get these back to you. More info here.
