About the Writing Center

The Writing Center, located on the first floor of the Athens State University Library in the Learning Commons Area. The Writing Center provides a supportive learning environment for students in all colleges at Athens State to meet their writing goals and objectives.

The Writing Center is staffed with peer writing advisors—students —who work with their peers on various academic and professional writing assignments. Writing advisors engage writers in conversation about their writing, pose questions, and discuss revision strategies. Writing advisors do not edit, proofread, or write texts for their peers—although they do have productive, educational ways to discuss grammar, editing skills, and proofreading.

Come for help with brainstorming, invention, arrangement, revision, style, and sentence structure for both traditional “paper” assignments and multimodal projects such as a Powerpoint presentation or a website. We provide writing sessions face-to-face, and we are piloting a new textual "chat" feature for live online sessions. Online chat sessions must be scheduled in advance, and  students must "show up" online at the scheduled time to keep an appointment.
