Writing Centers for Ohio University Students

There are several writing centers available for Ohio University students.

Each writing center has its own strengths and specialties, but all of them will work with any student, graduate or undergraduate, native-English speaker or non-native-English speaker. They all work with writers across the writing process, from brainstorming to final drafts.

All writing centers require students to be present and engaged during the session. While all of the writing centers assist students with long-term grammar or mechanics problems in addition to discussing content and organization, none operate as proofreading-only services.
