The Write Place

Faculty Resources

Our work does not replace the teaching of writing in the classroom but instead supplements and supports classroom instruction.

Most importantly, we value student ownership of their own work.

Trained student writing coaches provide an early audience for your students by

  • modeling the writing process,
  • alerting writers to possible revision priorities, and
  • asking questions we know writers need to learn to ask themselves.

Students can make as-needed appointments or, if they prefer, multiple sessions can be arranged to meet with the same writing coach over several weeks and possibly for the entire semester.

Tours, Presentations and Workshops

Contact the Write Place by email before or early in the semester to make arrangements.

Tours for classes of less than 25

In the first three to four weeks of each semester, we invite faculty to make an appointment to bring their classes into the writing center’s main location: WB 117. We provide a 30-45 minute tour in which we share information about our writing support services, demonstrate how the scheduling software works, and walk students through the steps of registering for access to the scheduling software so that they can schedule their own appointments.

In-class service overviews for 25+ classes

Our abbreviated in-class presentations take 10-20 minutes. If you prefer it, delivering the 30-45 minute tour is also an option.
