    Writing

    Writers of all skill levels can benefit from informed feedback about their writing. Wright State University provides funding so that students may have writing consultations free of charge. Our staff of trained undergraduate and graduate writing coaches from across the disciplines can provide support at any stage of your writing process. While we will not write or edit your work for you, a conversation with a writing coach can help you:

    • Discover the strengths and weaknesses in a piece of writing;
    • Understand assignment criteria;
    • Make sense of your source materials;
    • Generate and organize your ideas;
    • Develop a writing plan;
    • Formulate a thesis statement;
    • Develop your content;
    • Create compelling introductions and conclusions;
    • Learn how to properly quote and paraphrase information from sources;
    • Learn how to properly cite your sources;
    • Develop revision and editing strategies;
    • Prepare your writing for publication/presentation.

    In addition to providing Personal Peer Coaching, the Writing Center also offers the following resources:

    • Mini-manuals providing basic format and citation information for APA and MLA styles
    • Twelve networked computers for word processing and research applications
    • Adaptive equipment for students with disabilities
    • A library of reference materials you can use while in the center

    If you are interested in becoming a writing coach, please visit the FAQ section for details.

    We hope you stop by the center to make an appointment or just walk in to see if we have a coach available.
