Many students are aware of the various resources available on campus through Career Services, Student Development and the Counseling Center. However, an often-overlooked student service is the Write Site.
The Write Site offers a multitude of services for students who need help with any stage of the writing process for essays and the like. The Write Site is coordinated by Dr. Jennifer Phillips-Denny, and the writing consultants mostly consist of graduate assistants and undergraduate students from all disciplines.
Designed to assist students on a one-on-one basis, the Write Site requires students to make appointments to receive help with brainstorming, organizing, writing and revising their essays. The main goal of the Write Site is to explain writing techniques and highlight room for improvement and revision of an essay with the student present, so students are not allowed to merely drop off their essays for editing and proofreading.
The Write Site offers daytime instruction from Monday to Thursday in CFO 129 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Later appointments are reserved for commuter students and meet in Library 221 Sunday to Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
More opportunities for students to receive help from the Write Site can be found on the Online Writing Lab and OWLive. OWL allows students to upload their paper and receive comments on a critique sheet sent by email. By using a webcam and microphone, students can have a virtual one-on-one appointment through the OWLive program.
The Write Site is a part of the student services offered to all TWU students and is included in student service fees.
