The mission of the Western Connecticut State University Writing Center  is to be the center of support for writing at WCSU, with the understanding  that students at all levels of preparation and development will become stronger, more effective, and more competent writers through actively engaging with their own writing at all stages of the composing process. The Writing Center fulfills this mission for students through providing individual and small group tutoring sessions with trained peer tutors in a centrally accessible, comfortable environment. The Center also supports faculty through class visits, workshops, and individual consultations regarding effective writing instruction.


Staffed by friendly, knowledgeable undergraduate and graduate student tutors, we welcome writers at all stages of the writing process for assistance with:

  • Brainstorming
  • Rough drafts
  • Organization
  • Development of ideas
  • Revisions
  • Grammar and Mechanics
  • Citation and documentation of sources (MLA, APA, Chicago, and others)
  • English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL)

Because our goal is to support better writers, not just better writing, we do not proofread or “fix” papers, but we’ll help writers learn to successfully do it on their own.
