More than a simple proof-reading service, the Writing Center seeks to equip students with the tools they need to communicate well.
Please submit one paper at a time. After receiving your paper back, you may submit another.
Please give us 2-3 weekdays to review a paper for you.
*NOTE* The Writing Center will be closed until April 9
The Writing Center strives towards making us all better communicators. We have made a new space to this end where you will find our resources, a master calendar of WC events, a blog that will offer writing tips and reminders, and more! We hope you enjoy.Visit Here
Students may bring drafts of any assignment to the Writing Center for help with content or mechanics. Because writing is a process, we welcome students at any stage, from choosing a topic to polishing a final draft. The Writing Center seeks not only to assist students with specific assignments but also to help them become better writers, able to communicate biblical truth with clarity and power. Be sure to follow us on twitter! @SBTSwriting
Students may send in papers and questions at any time, and we will respond the next time our writing mentors are working. Also, students can schedule an appointment by completing this form.
