Every writer needs an interested reader, and the Bethany Writing Center offers free, skilled peer feedback to student writers.
The Writing Center can help at any point in the writing and revising process. Trained student tutors representing several majors along with an English professor are available to work with students who need help with brainstorming, organizing, thesis development, revising for sense and meaning, or surface issues of spelling and grammar. We welcome students with questions about all kinds of writing – professional emails, reports, research papers, creative work, and any other writing they do while at Bethany.
The Writing Center believes that writing is a process and each friendly consultation is based on cooperative learning. The center is not a drop-off editing or proofreading service, but a place to learn more about writing and to focus on a specific written assignment.
The Writing Center also offers workshops and clinics throughout the year in a variety of subjects. The center maintains a library of writing assignments and grading criteria from many professors in most areas of study that may be consulted on site. The center offers handouts and examples of three academic citation styles: APA, MLA, and Chicago.
Drop-ins and appointments are available every day except Saturday in Wallerstedt 118. Contact the center via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Writing Center is a service of the English, Theatre Arts, and Communication department.
