This semester, the Writing Center will be operating entirely online, which means that a number of our services have changed.
Writing Resources for Students and Instructors:
We have a number of writing resources available on iLearn for both students and instructors, with more being added every week. Join our iLearn site and click the “Writing Resources” tab on the left.
Join our site in five easy steps:
The Writing Center offers one-on-one writing tutoring to all students on campus, both undergraduate and graduate students, in all fields of study and at all levels of study. Students can make an appointment for a Writing Center session by visiting marist.mywconline.com. Our Writing Center is staffed by a combination of professional staff and peer undergraduate tutors, and students can pick who they want to work with when they make an appointment. Our tutors have experience working with writers at all stages of the writing process--from choosing a topic and drafting a thesis statement to re-organizing a draft and making the final edits. We can work with students on pretty much any type of writing project they might be working on, including both academic and non-academic writing. So whether they’re working on a PowerPoint presentation for a sociology class, a lab report for biology, an application essay for grad school, or a forum post for their First-Year Seminar course, our tutors are here to help.
We offer two types of online tutoring services: Virtual Face-to-Face tutoring and email draft tutoring.
In addition to our one-on-one conferences, the Writing Center offers writing workshops on various topics (like how to write a strong thesis statement, how to organize ideas in writing, and how to get started on a new writing assignment). We also hold writing retreats where students can join us virtually for two hours of structured writing time with tutors on hand for help. Schedules will be posted on the Writing Center’s iLearn site.
