Welcome to the Writing Center!

2023 Writing Consultant staff in front of Lake Ontario Hall

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 brainstorm ideas, organize content, integrate research, polish a draft, and correctly document sources.

Any graduate or undergraduate GVSU student can make an appointment or drop-in during any of our open hours. Faculty and staff interested in writing consultations for their own work and our other services can email Patrick Johnson, Writing Center Director ([email protected]).

If you would like to work with a writing consultant who is familiar with writing in your discipline or with your preferred citation style, please visit our consultant bio page
