Our dedicated team of tutors is available on all four campuses and online. Writing Center locations on each campus:

Hours vary by campus and semester. The best way to see available times is to log in to the online scheduler and make an appointment.
Tutors look forward to assisting all students with the same level of care and attention online and in person. The Writing Center supports writers throughout their Motlow academic experience by working with them at any stage of the writing process.
All Writing Center appointments start on the hour and last 50 minutes. Throughout the appointment, students will maintain ownership of their work. Students should bring their drafts and assignment prompts. It may also be helpful to bring syllabi, class notes, and any previous drafts or research materials.
Tutors help with development of ideas, formatting, punctuation, and grammar through an individualized and collaborative learning process. The ultimate goals are to provide writing support to a growing and diverse population and to help students become more confident, competent writers. Tutors will not write or edit any section of the assignment, but will work with students to revise and edit their assignments by listening, asking questions, making suggestions, and providing helpful resources. Students will leave each session with a concrete revision plan.
The Writing Center can help students cultivate both confidence and their abilities
