How We Can Help You
Our services are free to Drury students. You can drop-in or make an online reservation. The Writing Consultants are trained to work with you one-on-one at any stage of your writing. We can help you to:
- Focus and develop your ideas for greater clarity
- Organize your paragraphs for greater impact
- Improve your expression
- Recognize misuses of grammar
- Document your sources
Our goal is to focus on helping you become a better writer, not to “fix” your paper. Correcting your paper only reinforces our writing skills; it doesn’t help you become a better writer.
How You Can Help Us
Bring a copy of your assignment to show the Writing Consultant! This will help us understand your goals for the session. Your writing session may involve the following:
- Asking you about the assignment and the focus of your paper
- Listening to your ideas and your concerns about writing
- Asking you to read your writing out loud
- Encouraging you to become a better writer by taking an active role in the consulting session.
Writing Center Consultants are available during scheduled hours. Sessions last approximately one hour.
