What We Do

Our writing consultants are here to talk to you about your writing.  They can offer advice and resources regarding any stage of the writing process.  We want you to leave the Writing Center with specific items and a good understanding of what you can do in your next draft.

Come in for a face-to-face conference, which generally lasts 25-30 minutes. Due to current staffing limitations, you are strongly encouraged to make an appointment

You may also email your draft to a writing consultant in the Valparaiso University Writing Center. Consultants attempt to respond to drafts within five business days.
