The Write Place

The Write Place Staff

The Write Place, supporting St. Cloud State University writers since 1968, offers free, one-on-one and small group tutoring to all members of the St. Cloud State community from any discipline in face-to-face and synchronous online appointments.

We work with writers from all levels of experience, ability and expertise. Writers at any stage in the writing process work with trained writing consultants, who help them identify writing strengths and potential problems, teach students strategies for revision and editing, and provide information about writing conventions in the academy.

Write Place consultants also assist students in brainstorming, developing and organizing their ideas, in clarifying their communications and in adapting their texts for specific readers and purposes.
