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. Check out the list below to see what we do:

  • Offer assistance in understanding the writing process for a variety of papers from any subject or course
  • Recommend strategies for improvement in revision
  • Brainstorm ideas, discuss direction, and formulate a writing plan
  • Collaborate on organization, rhetorical structure, thesis statement, flow, and other writing conventions
  • Provide an audience for speeches and presentations
  • Help with resumes, CVs, personal statements, and other career documents
  • MLA, APA, and AMA formatting

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!

Our Mission

The Writing Center is a place where the dynamic nature of the writing process can be explored, and where effective writing habits can be modeled and developed in a flexible, comfortable environment. Accordingly, Writing Consultants act as an authentic audience and collaborate with writers at any stage of the writing process. Our skilled consultants help writers interpret assignments and readings, organize and effectively support ideas, plan revisions, and refine language, grammar, and style.
