Welcome to the Judith L. Beumer Writing Center!

The Writing Center will open on September 1, 2021 both in-person and online. Please email writing.center@valpo.edu with any questions.

We offer individual peer consultations and workshops on writing to support your growth as a writer. Make an appointment at any time by going to valpo.mywconline.com.

In our sessions, we provide strategies and guidance on writing assignments from any discipline, at any stage in the writing process, and for writers at all skill levels. We welcome graduate and undergraduate students!  Our goal is for you to become a credible, more confident writer who is able to make the best choices in any writing situation.  We hope to see you soon!

Our mission

The Writing Center offers resources and conversation vital to producing good writers. Good writers, we believe, consider situation, people, and rhetorical possibilities and will communicate in an ethical and effective manner. Our practice is rooted in the understanding that writing plays an essential role in the learning process. We are student-centered, committed to advancing Valparaiso University’s dynamic learning community.

What we do

Our writing consultants are here to talk to you about your writing. They can offer guiding questions, advice, and resources regarding any stage of the writing process. We want you to leave the Writing Center with 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. You may schedule online here: valpo.mywconline.com, or you may check for walk-in appointments when there is a green light on the Writing Center walk-in availability sign outside of the Writing Center. We look forward to working with you!


We are located in the Christopher Center on the first floor.
