Writing Center

The Writing Center assists students individually at any stage of the writing process, including:

  • Analyzing and understanding the assignment
  • Proofreading a rough draft
  • Revising and editing a developed or final draft
  • Following academic style and citation methods.

Students may bring to the Writing Center any projects such as personal essays, research papers, résumés, business letters, or lab reports.  The Writing Center maintains a library of helpful handouts regarding common errors of grammar, issues of style, elements of structure, and typical citation examples.

The Center’s writing consultants work with writers interactively and individually.  The consultants come from a variety of majors, have performed highly in their own writing courses, have been recommended by faculty, and are hired and supervised by the Center’s director.  They can help students improve their writing skills in any subject or level. 

The service is free to all current students by walk-in or appointment.  Appointments may be made at the Center or by calling 824-2303.  The Writing Center is located on the main floor of the Hammermill Library, room 205, and open six days a week.

More information is available through the MyMercyhurst portal site.
