Fred Meijer Center for Writing & Michigan Authors




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.
