While writing process is generally our focus, the Writing Center offers all kinds of services to help students. Our goal in the Writing Center is to build confidence in students while helping them understand the writing process, so that they can improve their revision practices.

Welcome to Our Writing Resource Archives
Writing through revision is the essence of the academic writing you will practice as a Spalding student. Your Writing Center collaborates with the QEP Department to create resources to help you avoid weak arguments and advice on how to effectively incorporate quotations in your writing. Need help understanding literature reviews, annotated bibliographies, or analytical essays? Their website also has an informative writing handbook that we think you will find very useful.
The following resources will assist you with invention, drafting, revising, and polishing your writing!
