Debby Ellis Writing Center M.O.
Simply put, we’re here to help you with your writing as much as is humanly possible (which should come as no big surprise, considering that we’re the Writing Center). Says our mission statement, we are here “to help Southwestern students improve their writing. Specially trained student consultants work one-on-one with writers at all levels, on all texts, and at all stages in the process. With attention to both the process and the product of writing – both the writer and the text – consultants can help with anything from brainstorming to final editing.” And there you have it.
To go a little further in detail, a friendly bulleted list of things that we can help you with is provided with utmost humility:
- Getting started or formulating a thesis
We deal primarily with academic essays, but we’ll look at anything from application essays or personal statements for grad school to creative writing. All members of our staff has taken a course on being a writing consultant and have access to additional resources if needed.
