Writing Center

The FSW Academic Writing Support Centers are committed to assisting our students in the current health climate, but in order to do so in a safe and efficient manner for you and our staff, we have implemented some changes.

The Academic Support Writing Center is staffed by expert instructional assistants/tutors who are available to assist you with any writing or reading assignment. We will work with you in a one-on-one Zoom consultation to go over assignments, giving you the tools and resources necessary to become better writers. We welcome you to visit a Writing Center regularly, and we’ll try our best to help you satisfy your writing needs and achieve your academic goals.

We encourage you to view our Spring 2021 Writing Center video below to review access, services, and our tutoring options.

The Writing Centers are physically open with limited seating and access to computers as shown below at each location.

Want to "drop-off" a writing assignment for review by an FSW Writing Center Tutor?

  • Email to WCOnline@fsw.edu
  • Include your name, student ID, and course in the email message
  • Same day review is not available; assignments must be emailed at least 48-72 hours in advance
  • Writing assignments should be sent as a Microsoft Word .doc or .docx format
  • Requests directly to Writing Center staff will not be reviewed

In order for you to get the most out of each review and save time, we recommend taking the following steps:

  • Know which primary concerns you would like to address (citations, thesis, grammar).
  • Send assignment instruction to us.

Email Laura.Price@fsw.edu for more information on writing services available through Academic Support Writing Services.

Writing Center Remote Zoom Services

  • A one-on-one consultation where we discuss your writing or reading assignment with you for up to 40 minutes.
  • Assistance at any point in the writing process.
  • A discussion of strengths and weaknesses of your writing, allowing you the opportunity to take what you have learned and put it into action.
  • A consultation sheet that documents the content we discussed during the session.
  • A collection of handouts and other resources to help improve your writing ability.

Preparing For Your Remote Zoom Visit

  • Know the specifics of the assignment, your professor’s expectations, and what you wish to accomplish during each tutoring session.
  • You will need to use a computer or laptop to get the most out of your session. A microphone and camera are recommended but not required.
  • Thoroughly read all related materials (e.g. short stories, text chapters, novels, etc.)
  • Give considerable thought to the assignment prior to your session.
  • Have a specific question regarding the assignment when coming in for help.
  • Allow sufficient time before your assignment is due to work with your tutor.
  • Realize that by discussing your work-in-progress, we will guide you through prewriting, drafting, and revising. Although we will address patterns of errors in your papers, it is your responsibility to proofread and edit your own work.
  • Make sure you have a distraction-free place to work without interruption for the duration of your session. Mute your phone during your consultation.
