Writing Center

The Writing Center is a free, walk-in service available to all Houghton College students.

A sign-up sheet is posted on the door for anyone wanting to schedule a conference in advance. Let our friendly, trained peer consultants – whose goal is to facilitate better understanding in matters of purpose, audience, focus, support, development, organization and voice rather than merely to proofread – talk with you about your writing projects in all stages: brainstorming, drafting, revising and editing. Whenever possible, please bring your assignment sheet and any grading criteria provided with you to your meeting.

Feel free to contact Prof. Laurie Dashnau with any questions or concerns.
