Writing Studio: Writing Help

The Writing Studio is located to your left as you enter the Pilgrim Library. 

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).
