If you're confused about how to write your essays, then come in for a prewriting conference.

  • The Writing Center strongly encourages you to come in as soon as you receive your prompt. Just bring your printed assignment sheet, and we’ll help you interpret the assignment, generate ideas, and structure your paper.
  • Prewriting conferences also allow us to spend more time on any “extra” concerns you may have such as quoting or parenthetical citations.
  • Once you’ve started writing your papers, you’re limited to two draft conferences per assignment, but you may come in for as many prewriting conferences as you like.
