Writing Studio: Writing Help

Writing Studio

Writing Consultants 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 FREE private, individualized help in half-hour sessions to develop strategies for approaching their writing 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.

If you have questions please call (419-783-2332) or

email (lcrumithancock@defiance.edu).
