Writing Center

Our services are free to DSU students, and our mission is to help you become a better writer by approaching your assignments as a process of invention, writing, and revision. You can walk into the Writing Center and begin working with a tutor if s/he is not assisting another student at that moment, make an appointment to return at another time or call (435) 652-7629 to make an appointment. Please bring to the Writing Center a description of the writing project and a draft of the paper you wrote to meet the requirements of the project.

The Writing Center is staffed by peer tutors who offer suggestions, instruction, and tips to help you improve your individual skills. Please keep in mind that the Writing Center is not a proofreading service. We focus on helping you become a better writer rather than helping you correct mistakes in an essay. Tutors give basic suggestions for improvement and teach you to review your own papers. We will do our best to help you improve your writing skills, but responsibility for generating an error-free paper lies solely with you.

We look forward to helping you at the Writing Center; please let us know how we can improve our service to you and to Dixie State University.
