The Writing Center

Welcome!

The Writing Center is a safe, caring space where writers of any kind, at any stage of the process, with any writing project can have a conversation about their work with a peer: a student writing consultant who can help facilitate a discussion and offer constructive feedback in a one-with-one setting. Our hope is to address not only your short-term writing concerns, but to become part of your development as a writer.

Why? Writing is an individual process in many ways, but it's one that benefits from a supportive community. Talking through your writing with a peer can help make you more conscious of your own writing, revising, and editing power.

Where? Come visit us in the Communications Building: the center is located in its own cozy, private space within the Learning Commons inside Perkins Library. 

How? Walk-ins are welcome, but preference is given to writers with an appointment. To make an appointment, visit our scheduling management system at doane.mywconline.com, and sign-in using your Doane email address. (You'll need to register in the system on your first visit to the site.)

When? Our schedule (though it may change to adapt to demand) for the fall 2014 semester includes the following hours: 

Monday         1–4 p.m. and 7–9 p.m.

Tuesday        3–5 p.m. and 7–9 p.m.

Wednesday  1–5 p.m. and 7–9 p.m.

Thursday      1–5 p.m.

Friday            1–5 p.m.

 

Hope to see you soon!
