Writing Resources

Learning to write well is a life-long process. In part, this process continues simply because we, as writers, will inevitably be expected to write in different contexts and in different forms throughout the course of our lives – e.g. texts, emails, business memos, lab reports, essays, literature reviews, ethnographies, speeches, etc. We, writing teachers, recognize that our students enter into our writing courses at different stages in their development as writers. Often, writers need a bit more support than our courses alone can offer them.

If you are struggling with a particular issue in your writing, please take a look at the multiple resources available to you on campus; these resources can help you address and work through those obstacles:
