The Writing Center

What to Expect


The FGCU Writing Center offers 30 minute sessions on a walk-in basis. These consultations are very much a hands-on, interactive process. The writing consultant guides you through the writing process, offering support and direction as you make changes and improvements to your own writing assignments.

Consultants do not write your paper for you, nor do they edit or proofread your paper. You set the agenda, and you are an active participant in the session. Our goal is to help you learn the skills you need to improve your writing independently beyond just the initial assignment.

We help with all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming to assisting with improvement in mechanics and formatting. Our consultants can help with more than just academic assignments. We also assist with creative writing and application essays. Your consultant cannot and will not predict or assess the validity of a grade; however, he or she can help you identify problematic areas in your writing and offer strategies for improving in these weaker areas.
