Sample Text for Syllabus
- Writing Center: The Writing Center is a free resource for all writers and you should take advantage of it! Working collaboratively and incorporating feedback and revision strengthens your writing process and you can work with a tutor at any stage. You can go to work on getting started, you can go with a finished draft to work on its final polish and citations, or you can go at any stage in between to work on ensuring your ideas and language are communicated clearly and your organization effective.
