The Marian E. Wright Writing Center is located on the 3rd floor in the Thompson Library and serves UM-Flint students and faculty from across the disciplines. The Writing Center is appointment-based, with sessions available for 25 minutes (for writings up to 5 pages) or 55 minutes (6-10 pages). Appointments can be made online, by phone, or in person. Walk-ins are assisted only if tutors are available.
Writing Center tutors are comprised of undergraduate and graduate students who are are required to take a 4-credit course combining written coursework, writing theory, tutor training, and in-center observation and practice. They are broadly equipped as critical readers and listeners who provide helpful feedback to writers and speakers at any phase of writing:
- Essays and Research Papers
- Creative Writing and Poetry
- Resumes/Cover Letters/Personal Statements
- Speaking/PowerPoint/Prezi Presentations
- Faculty Assignment Sheets and Academic Writing
Asynchronous online tutoring is available to students in online courses only.
The Writing Center is not designed as a line-editing service. When directing students to the writing center for a particular assignment, faculty are encouraged to provide assignment sheets to accompany student visits.
Writing Center staff are available (by request) for classroom visits to distribute brochures, and describe services and procedures.
