Students at all levels, in all programs, and in all formats can make writing center appointments using the link below.
The NSU Write from the Start Writing and Communication Center (WCC) is an innovative workspace where students, consultants, and faculty come together, in person and online, to talk about writing and communication.
Staffed by trained professional and peer writing consultants, the WCC offers individualized writing and communication assistance to all NSU students. Students are welcome to work with us on all types of academic writing and communication projects, including (but not limited to) essays, research projects, lab reports, reflections, multimodal projects, theses, dissertations, and presentations (oral and poster).
Our consultants offer assistance during all stages of the process, from brainstorming and developing ideas to editing final products. Specifically, they will discuss your assignments, listen to your ideas, ask you questions, talk about writing strategies, and offer constructive feedback. In short, they will help you develop stronger writing and communication habits.
In addition to consultations, the WCC offers graduate student writing workshops and faculty development workshops.
Some WCC staff also serve as writing fellows, which are course-embedded writing assistants who provide additional writing support to students. Writing fellows are typically undergraduate or graduate students trained in writing center pedagogy who also have experience with the discipline-specific writing conventions they help students practice and learn. Each semester, writing fellows work in special "writing enriched" courses across the NSU curriculum, as well as in all NSU composition classes (COMP 1000, COMP 1500, and COMP 2000).
