Writing Center


Need help with writing?

Support for writing is available to all Emory & Henry students who wish to grow as writers inside and outside the classroom. 

ALERT:  We are currently interviewing and hiring tutors for Fall 2019; if you need help before tutors are available, contact Dr. Mitchell for an appointment.

The Writing Center oversees a range of services, from individualized tutoring sessions to online tutoring, to serve Emory & Henry students. We are committed to helping students to grow as writers and editors. We do not edit or revise your work but help you to learn how to be better writers. To achieve that goal, we are here to help you from process to product at various locations on campus, including Kelly Library, and online.  To learn about how to set up an appointment with a tutor, when and where to drop in without an appointment, and how much we can help, click on “Meet the Tutors.”  If you need somebody to help you get started with a plan for success as a writer before you meet with a tutor, contact  Dr. Mitchell for for an appointment to focus on your particular needs.

In addition to offering tutoring services, we maintain a computer lab that students are welcome to use between classes and in the late afternoon or evening if it is not otherwise in use for testing or some other official business.  McGlothlin-Street Hall 233 is a quiet space with Windows computers, a printer and other supplies a writer may need.  Students working in the lab during the day may find Dr. Mitchell in her office in McGlothlin-Street Hall 230 to help with questions about writing or computer issues. (Please see Marywood Sparks in McGlothlin-Street Hall 139 for paper.)
