    • Analyze Guidelines 

      • Figure out what your professor wants and what you need to include.

      Brainstorm

      • Start with all the ideas - or no ideas. Either way, we'll get you started.

      Outline

      • Organize your ideas into a cohesive plan to start writing from.

      Write a Thesis

      • Create a strong main idea for your paper so that you don't get lost along the way.

    • Organize

      • Arrange your paragraphs and the information they contain effectively.

      Integrate Research

      • Synthesize your sources with your ideas.

      Revise

      • See your draft in a whole new light as you consider cohesion, clarity, and conciseness.

      Develop Ideas

      • Analyze your evidence to expand on your ideas (and make that page count).
    • Edit

      • Focus on the structure and clarity of your sentences to improve readability.

      Cite

      • Make sure you've documented all of your sources correctly in any style.

      Format

      • Compare your draft with a sample in the same style (APA, MLA, etc.) to make sure you are following all the conventions.

      Proofread

      • Read through your draft to catch typos, missing punctuation, or wrong words.

      Requests

       
      • Anything!

        We help you with any kind of writing - for any class or for other purposes too. We usually start with global concerns, like your thesis or organization of your paragraphs, and then move to local concerns, like run-on sentences and semicolons.

      • One-on-one writing help.

        We sit down with you either virtually or in-person and read through your paper with you. When we see confusing writing or repeated errors, we stop and discuss them with you.

      • Nope.

        All writers struggle at different points in their writing process, and we want you to visit whenever you need to, especially if you're really stuck. You can even bring only your assignment guidelines, and we can help you get started.

      • That's okay!

        We always start with your professor's assignment guidelines and have plenty of style guides, so we can handle almost anything you bring in, from research papers to scholarship application essays. And if we don't know the answer, we know how to find it.

      • No worries.

        In fact, most students who visit the WC and most of our writing assistants are not English majors either. Because writing is cross-disciplinary, a well-written lab report has a lot in common with a well-written business memo.

      • Yes.

        After every session, we send a quick email to your professor to let them know you cared enough to seek extra feedback on your writing.
