What is The Writing Center?

Become a better writer

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. We also have ample resources for you to use. Need to know how to locate those resources? See this guide.
