Writing Center

The Writing Center is a free service available to all Houghton College students.

Writing Center Hours beginning Monday, March 23

The Writing Center is eager to be of assistance.

–Please send email requests/papers in any stage you’d like help with to writingcenter@houghton.edu (no dot in the first half), indicating in a short note

  1. What class is it for, and any information important to know (e.g., length, format, items to be included, etc.).
  2. If you’d like email feedback (and by when), and about what in particular.
  3. If you would prefer a Zoom conference (up to 40 minutes), and if so, when you are available (date and beginning and end times). Please be specific and provide a second choice if possible.

The earlier you write, the more readily we can accommodate your request. Please give us at least 48 hours’ notice.

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