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 616-331-2922.

New Resource: The Communication Triangle Post Card

When writing for your class...

In collaboration with Writing Across the Curriculum, the Writing Center has drafted a helpful resource regarding "the Communication Triangle" (often referred to as "the Rhetorical Triangle"). By using this post-card, writers can have a helpful guided experience with the following:

  • Writing for a reader
  • Writing within a context
  • Writing with a purpose
  • Reading any genre
  • Reading new information
  • Picking topics

Communication Triangle side one: understanding the rhetorical situation

For more information about ways in which writers exist in a communication context, consider viewing our helpful handouts; there, you can find information about audience expectations, language and jargon, genre facts, and much more!

Communication Triangle side two: questions to ask yourself
