The Writing Center Office The Writing Center offers one-on-one consultations between students and trained peer consultants on a drop-in basis. Our consultants serve as friendly-but-critical readers. The typical consultation begins with a collaborative effort to identify priorities for the session. Students benefit most from sessions that occur at the planning, drafting, and revising stages, when there is still enough time for the writer to rethink ideas, argument, and evidence in creative and constructive ways. Consultants will ask writers lots of questions and encourage students to recognize their own weaknesses and identify strategies for making changes and enhancing strengths. Ideally, this conversational exploration will prompt writers to refine both the argument and the prose for clarity and power.Location: Young Hall • Room 140 Hours: SUN — THU • (7 p.m. – 11 p.m.) MON — THU • (2 p.m. – 4 p.m.) Please arrive at least 20 minutes before closing.
