Welcome to the College of Education Writing Resource

A fresh pair of eyes is a powerful tool during the drafting process. The Writing Resource is here to help you with your writing projects. Our mission is to support writers at every stage, to facilitate individual growth, and to foster a strong community of writers. Our services are free to College of Education graduate students throughout their development as academic and professional writers, from conceptualizing ideas to polishing and publishing.

Consulting and Workshops

We offer appointments, enrollment, walk-ins, and a graduate writing workshop. Bring your assignment, along with any questions you have. Together, we can begin to brainstorm, plan, and develop your draft. Tutoring is a collaborative process that works best over multiple sessions. Schedule follow-up appointments to work further into the craft of the writing.
