Resources for Faculty

The Writing Labs provide support for writers, especially students, working on shorter projects, but for those of you who may need more consistent support and more experienced readers, we can facilitate Writer's Groups of 3-4 committed members who agree to meet regularly to exchange and read drafts.  Additionally, Writing Center tutors can conduct workshops on particular aspects of writing, such as editing, documentation, style, organization—whatever your needs.  Finally, I am always available for individual and group consultations.  To make arrangements for any of these services, or to suggest other ways I can support your research and writing, please contact Kristen Garrison, Writing Program Administrator.

The Internet offers an overwhelming selection of resources for writers, so to save you time and anxiety, I’ve listed some good resources below; if you would like to recommend a site, please email the link.
