Take an inside look at the Writing Center: What Happens During A Writing Coaching Session

The Writing Center is a great place to get in depth help on essays and papers. I come to the Writing Center twice a week to get a jump start on essays so that I am not cramming at the last minute. It helps to get an extra set of eyes on your work. Blake Bozymski

Overcoming Procrastination:

  • Don’t let your paper become overwhelming! Break your writing tasks up into the smallest possible chunks and tackle them one at a time.

Editing and Proofreading:

  • Read your paper aloud, or get your computer to read it to you using text-to-speech. It’ll change your writing life.

Writing Concisely:

  • Eliminate redundant words, delete unnecessary qualifiers, and reduce prepositional phrases.

The Importance of a Good Introduction:

  • You never get a second chance to make a first impression. The opening paragraph of your paper will provide your readers with initial impressions of your argument, your writing style, and the overall quality of your work.
