The Writing Center provides individual writing support to all members of the Towson University community, including undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff. Writing Center consultants work with writers at any stage of the writing process from brainstorming to polishing the final draft. They provide feedback to help writers develop and organize their thoughts, sharpen their focus, and communicate their ideas more clearly and precisely. Writers can bring in any type of writing project, including essays, research papers, lab reports, PowerPoint presentations, resumes, and creative writing.

In addition to face-to-face tutoring, the Writing Center provides a robust online tutoring platform (WCOnline) where students can schedule appointments and meet with writing consultants. This platform offers screen-to-screen live video conversations similar to Skype, while also letting students review written documents in real time in ways similar to Google Docs. More information about the Writing Center’s online services can be found on the Writing Center’s virtual tutoring page.

The Writing Center is dedicated to creating an inclusive and accessible learning environment. Please contact Wayne Robertson if you require any accommodations or have suggestions about how the Writing Center can better meet your needs.
