As the semester silently slips into its final weeks, your students may be hard at work on an important final paper or other written project. Consider reminding them of a valuable, FREE resource that may help them to successfully complete this assignment – The Writing Center, located on the first floor of the Eshelman Library (B-building).
Co-directors Mike Hill and Chelsea “Charlie” Lonsdale explain how the Writing Center works:
We are here to serve writers across campus at any stage of any writing project. Writers can drop-in or make appointments (appointments are given priority) M – F and have a 30 minute session with a well-qualified and trained Respondent. During these sessions, writers will discuss and receive feedback on their work so that they can better understand their purposes, audiences, and voices while writing. Session are designed to be supportive, empowering, and discursive. We do not copy edit papers; instead we help writers develop strategies to meet their own goals in writing.
Encourage (but please do not compel) students to drop in or schedule an appointment by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or text: 313.367.3250. Students should include their name and desired date/time they’d like to come in. They will receive a confirmation email or text to confirm the appointment.
