Writing Center

The Writing Center welcomes all DePauw writers -- from students working on essays for First-Year Seminars to seniors immersed in lengthy, semester-long research projects.

Consultants at the W Center give feedback and suggestions to students in classes across the curriculum.  You are encouraged to visit the W Center (virtually in Fall 2020) to talk over essays that you're working on, no matter what the discipline.  Students enrolled in writing-intensive classes, such as First-Year Seminars, W Courses, and Senior Seminars, may find it especially helpful to discuss assignments and essay drafts with a W Consultant.

Writing consultants can help you get started on a writing project, revise a messy rough draft, or develop and refine an almost-final essay. You're encouraged to bring drafts, ideas, and questions to your meeting. 

Writing Center handouts may answer some of your questions, too.
