What We Do

Shawnee State University Writing Center tutors help students in all majors improve their ability to write.

We provide feedback on any kind of assignment at all phases of the writing process. We prioritize helping students learn how to tackle “bigger” concerns such as revising, brainstorming, organizing, and understanding an assignment although we do address punctuation, grammar, format and other “smaller” issues.

We help students not only produce better writing, but also become better writers.
