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.
The Writing Center strives towards making better communicators. We have available to you a page of resources, a master calendar of Writing Center events, a blog that offers writing tips, and more!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.
