LIBRARY ANNEX HOURS: SUNDAY – THURSDAY
6:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M.
(Fall and Spring)
Because of high student traffic during the final weeks of the semester, the Center for Writing will offer services by appointment only from Monday, December 2 through Friday, December 6, 2013. Also because of high demand, the deadline for submitting papers for fall courses to our online service is 12 noon, Wednesday, December 4. During study days after that, the center will offer face-to-face assistance (by appointment only), so please plan ahead and book your appointments via our online scheduler. The center offers no tutorial services during finals week because staff members will be busy giving and grading final exams. We will be open after that until Dec. 23, when TCU closes for the holidays.
Welcome to TCU's Center for Writing!
We are trained, experienced writing consultants, happy to assist you with your writing needs, whether you are student, staff, or faculty. We can assist at any stage of your writing project, from topic generation through organizing your ideas and documenting your sources. We serve as a friendly audience to offer feedback and suggestions on essays; research papers; book reviews; reports; theses; dissertations; book manuscripts; internship, graduate, medical, or law school application essays; and cover letters and resumes. We are an instructional service, not a proofreading or editing service, but we will provide suggestions on identifying and correcting common punctuation or grammatical errors. To encourage independence in undergraduate writers, we limit our input to three tutoring sessions on a particular project.
