THE WRITING CENTER- The Library Room 2230
This service for graduate students is an initial analysis of your writing and identifies possible areas for improvement with academic texts. These are not proofreading sessions but diagnoses of generic weaknesses for potential improvements.
The Writing Center instructors will:
• Help organize your writing efficiently in terms of structure, syntax and style
• Improve academic diction to a high standard for mainstream publications
• Empower your own writing by organizing sentence and paragraph structures coherently
• Increase fluidity and readability of your writing
