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 at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming to editing.
In addition to consultations, the WCC offers graduate and professional student writing and communication workshops and faculty development workshops.
Some WCC staff serve as writing fellows, which are course-embedded writing assistants. Writing fellows are typically undergraduate or graduate students trained in writing center pedagogy who 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 NSU composition classes (COMP 1000, COMP 1500, and COMP 2000).
