The Writing Center is here and ready to help - in-person or online!
Welcome to the Writing Center
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 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are here and ready to help students and faculty during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please visit our page to learn more about the services we are offering as well as the safety procedures we are putting in place in order to help protect students, staff, and the wider campus community.
