The Writing Center
The Writing Center is a welcoming, caring space where writers of any kind in the Crete campus community, at any stage of the process, with any writing project can have a conversation about their work with a 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. Bring anything, from an idea in your head or an outline to a complete draft.
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 consultant can help make you more conscious of your own writing, revising, and editing power. Consultants are trained undergraduate students, sophomores through seniors, from a variety of disciplines, interests, and backgrounds.
Where? Come visit us in the Communications Building, Room 144: the center is located in its own cozy, private space within the Learning Commons inside Perkins Library. You can also follow us on multiple platforms: Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and WordPress.
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 this semester:
Monday to Thursday 3–5 p.m. & 7–9 p.m.
