Writing Center

The Writing Center is a free resource available to all LR students and faculty. The center puts you in touch with caring, supportive readers for your work in progress.

We offer in-person and online sessions. Appointments are required for online sessions and should be made at least two hours in advance to ensure that a tutor is available.

Services Offered

Our one-on-one sessions with writers typically focus on one or two of the following topics:

  • Understanding the assignment
  • Generating ideas to write about
  • Supporting a thesis or purpose
  • Organizing ideas
  • Editing for coherence, clarity and correctness
  • Citing sources correctly

If you don't see your concern on the list, just let your tutor know what's on your mind. If you need help with more than two issues you can make as many appointments with us as you need.
