Our small Zoom writing groups are even more important these digital semesters. They are helpful not just with your writing, but also getting to know other students in a small comfortable setting and in becoming familiar with more features of Zoom and online learning in general. More info here.
How we can help you with your writing:
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 your draft in ways that will help you see what you've got so you can make choices about what to add, cut, or move around.
Help you correct errors Worried about your grammar, 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
