the three or so issues you most need feedback about

What We Do
Writers need feedback from readers to help refine their writing. The Writing Center can give you this feedback. Our tutors will talk with you about your writing to help you:
clarify main points
strengthen logic and support
smooth out organization
integrate sources and credit them properly
fine-tune sentence style
learn to proofread
Because we want to help you become a better writer, we won't edit or proofread your paper for you. We will help you learn to revise and edit so you will be better able to catch your own errors and improve your own content, organization, and style.
