Writing Center

The Reddie Writing Center offers a quiet and personal space for all students, faculty, and staff at Henderson State University to improve their writing skills. The Writing Center staff, who are mostly graduate assistants and trainee tutors, work with individual students on a peer-tutoring model to help them improve their papers on their own and become independent writers.

Services

  • One-on-One Tutoring / Online Writing Lab (OWL): As a precaution against COVID-19 virus, all face-to-face individualized tutoring services have moved online. Students can work from home and meet with our tutors through this OWL system for sharing and discussing their writing. This is a One-on-One learning environment where students can make an appointment from 30 minutes to an hour. CLICK HERE to sign up and make an appointment with a tutor.
  • Workshops: The Writing Center offers workshops on various aspects of writing and research, such as organizing & revising papers, plagiarism, research process, and MLA / APA / Chicago guidelines. Please, CLICK HERE to see workshop topics and their dates for this semester. 
  • Write-ins: We announce write-in events during final weeks of the semester. These events offer a quiet place to work and are especially helpful for undergraduates in writing intensive Core courses and graduates working on large projects. Our tutors will be available for help during the sessions.
  • Outreach: This is a resource for faculty. We can collaborate with faculty to offer outreach sessions in class depending on students’ writing needs.

What to Expect

When you come to the Writing Center, you will work one-on-one with our tutors. Please bring a list of specific questions or areas you need help on, a copy of your assignment sheet and a copy of your paper.

We will not proofread or edit papers, but we can help you develop these skills. Statistics show that students who take advantage of writing center services become better writers and make better grades on their papers.
