All members of the University community are encouraged to visit, work, and stay in the Writing Center. While you are in the Writing Center, respect the work and rights of others and the University's community standards of behavior. Please be particularly attentive to how your activities might disrupt others' work; the Writing Center is primarily a place for learning and study, so loud or unruly behavior is especially out of place.
In general, tutorial sessions last 30 minutes, although they may be extended at the tutor's discretion. Writers visiting the Writing Center are discouraged from making multiple appointments in one day or more than a few appointments in a given week. In general, we do not edit, correct, or "fix" errors (or drafts).
Why don't tutors edit (or "fix") writers' drafts? Editing and proofreading are difficult practices to develop, yet their use is critically important in writing processes of all kinds. At the Writing Center, we teach strategies for revising prose and for recognizing and avoiding errors, and we will occasionally model these strategies for writers. In general, however, we do not edit, correct, or "fix" errors (or drafts).
