MISSION

The Mission of the Write Place is one of service: writing consultants appreciate the uniqueness of individual learners and work with all students in their efforts to become better writers. Write Place consultants encourage, guide, and support student writers on any writing assignment and at any stage of the writing process.

In order to help students improve their writing, consultants:

  • Address global concerns before sentence-level concerns.
  • Do not proofread papers.
  • Help students understand their writing assignments.
  • Engage the student in a conversation about his or her writing.
  • Discover the strengths and weaknesses of the student’s writing.
