Writing Workshops

Writing Help

Student Academic Support Services (SASS) provides students with free assistance on their papers, projects, and reports from writing consultants who have been recommended by faculty members, have successfully completed the writing courses at Defiance College and are all-around excellent students. Writing Consultants provide students with private, individualized help in half-hour sessions to develop strategies for approaching their assignments through a better understanding of purpose, structure, topic, and audience. Writing Consultants are not proofreaders nor merely editors; they are trained to help writers with higher order concerns at ANY stage of the writing process.
