We're here to assist you with any writing project, at any stage of your writing process. The center's well-trained peer consultants can help you to brainstorm ideas, organize content, integrate research, polish a draft, and correctly document sources.
Any graduate or undergraduate GVSU student can make an appointment or take advantage of our drop-in hours simply by coming into the center with a draft of your writing. Faculty and staff interested in writing consultations for their own work and our other services can call 331-2922.
Still have questions? Feel free to call, stop by, or email us!
We have an amazing opportunity for Grand Valley - The Fred Meijer Center for Writing and Michigan Authors is hosting the return of three previous writing consultants for our March 3rd Fireside Chat (a casual setting with snacks, coffee, and learning).
If you are interested in learning about the rich and intricate lives of Grand Valley graduates who used to work for the Fred Meijer Center for Writing and Michigan Authors, please join us from 3:30pm-4:30pm in LOH 120 on March 3rd (Friday).
