How We Can Help

Writing is a process. We can help you with all aspects of this process. Here is a list of areas we can assist you with:

  • Generating and Exploring Ideas: freewriting, brainstorming, clustering, outlining, reading, talking, and working collaboratively

  • Exploring a Topic: limiting a topic, establishing purpose, considering audience, doing research, formulating a preliminary thesis, choosing an appropriate form, and developing a plan of organization

  • Drafting: developing ideas, arranging ideas in logical/strategic order, refining the thesis, developing relevant and adequate support, inserting transitions, developing a consistent tone and point of view, and creating voice

  • Revising Content: anticipating readers' needs and responses, testing and clarifying the thesis, generating more or different information, and deciding to include or exclude material

  • Revising Organization and Coherence: reordering content, paragraphing, reviewing and strengthening transitions

  • Revising Style: combining and decombining sentences to tighten and clarify ideas, and eliminating wordiness and redundancy

  • Editing: applying standard grammar and usage, observing conventions of punctuation, capitalization, documentation and spelling
