Write When You Need It: Write Site @ Night

Reports, proposals, dissertations. Articles, presentations, results.  In these forms and more, writing is a significant part of academic life.  Practice tends to improve a writer's craft over time, but what can Pioneers learn now about putting words on a page?

Current TWU students and faculty and staff members can get help with any aspect of the writing process by making an appointment with the Write Site or Write Site @ Night, the Write Site's evening writing tutorial service based in the Pioneer Center for Student Excellence on the second floor of the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus.  This service of the popular and comprehensive writing center at TWU is available for both individuals and groups.
