We all struggle with writing at one time or another. And, we all benefit from having another set of eyes and ears to test our writing conversation out on a real audience. That’s why Indiana Tech’s Writing Center is here. We are about the person, not the paper. We want to help create better writers.
Virtual Writing Center
The Writing Center is here for you with the following online services.
- Through WConline – you can book a slot, upload your paper, and get a response within 24-hours.
- You can contact a tutor directly through their email address on our tutors page.
- You can practice your presentation through a Blackboard Collaborate session by emailing a tutor.
What we do
The Writing Center is a place where undergraduate and graduate students on our Fort Wayne campus can get free support and feedback on writing and presentation assignments. We are not a drop-off editing service. Instead, we are here to work one-on-one with all writers, at all levels of proficiency, for all courses. We help students at any stage of their writing process–brainstorming a topic, formatting a final draft or practicing a PowerPoint delivery. Here are some additional ways we help:
For the individual: We offer assistance for all Indiana Tech disciplines, colleges and courses.
For groups: These could be designed by faculty, students or staff to meet a specific writing or presentation need. We can help design the work, the space and the time.
Workshops: We can develop workshops for faculty, students and staff. Make a request, whether for a specific assignment, a specific need or any training related to writing and presenting.
Classroom assistance: We can help students design and present a project. We will attend the student’s class as a coach and writing assistant.
Writing space: The Writing Center can be the quiet place a student needs to get something done. The space is free to use on a “stop-by” basis, without making an appointment.
Midterm and finals paper parties: The week before midterms and finals, we offer a place to work and get help from librarians and writing tutors. We even provide refreshments to help students get through these crunch times. No registration is required. Stop by and get the help you need.
If you are a student within our Ph.D. in Global Leadership program, contact the department at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for writing assistance.
Students taking courses at campuses away from Fort Wayne or online may get free writing assistance from Tutor.com. You can access this resource when you are signed in to Blackboard.
