The Writing Center at Georgia Southern University gives students the opportunity for individualized feedback on their writing from experienced writers and teachers of writing.
Like other tutoring centers at Georgia Southern, we will continue to offer individualized writing assistance in the fall while ensuring the safety of our students and our tutors. While some face-to-face tutoring in the Center will still take place on a drop-in basis with strict social distancing, we strongly encourage students to make appointments online where we can share documents and talk via video from different locations. (See the appointment instructions in the window on the right.)
In the writing center, students from any course and at any stage of the writing process can sign up for half-hour or hour-long conferences and receive advice on improving their drafts. The Center is a part of the Department of Writing and Linguistics and staffed by graduate and undergraduate peer tutors.
Though Writing Center consultants will not proofread papers (find all the grammar and/or punctuation problems and correct them for students), they will make suggestions, work on organization and development, point students to useful resources, and help students to identify and fix grammar/punctuation problems on their own.
If you’re a faculty member and would like someone from the Writing Center to visit your class and give a short talk to your students about our services, please visit our Classroom Visits page.
