WRITING CENTER

Want some extra help with your writing skills? The TWU Writing Center is here for you! The Writing Center is staffed by trained student tutors who will work with you to generate insights, organize them, and fashion them into well-written essays.

The Writing Center is not a proofreading service. Our tutors will help you address specific concerns in content, structure, grammar, and style. Our aim is to empower you—to guide you toward the skills you need to write well in college and beyond. The Writing Center helps to produce good writers by giving you help when you need it in the context of your own writing.

The Writing Center is free for all TWU students: you are welcome to come by, without an appointment, at any time during scheduled hours. Those with long-term writing needs are encouraged to come on a regular basis, while those with lengthy projects are urged not to wait until the last minute to seek help.

Each in-person session will typically last about 15 minutes, after which you can take what you learn and apply it to your work. You can always return to the Writing Center again if need be.

Tutors will also be available to assist you online; contact writingcenter@tnwesleyan.edu for help. Please allow time for a tutor to receive your message and respond with help.

The Writing Center is part of the Academic Support Center, located on the ground floor of the library in the Archives Room.
For more information, please contact Dr. Elizabeth Ruleman at eruleman@tnwesleyan.edu or (423) 746-5247. The tutors marked “W” are the writing tutors.
