The Saint Vincent College Writing Center is an interdisciplinary resource that seeks to provide students the opportunity to become more confident, independent, and capable writers. The writing consultants, a diverse group of students who have been trained to facilitate 1:1 tutorials, group sessions, and workshops, will guide and support students of all writing abilities through each stage of the writing process, from formulating ideas, to applying the Six Principles of Good Writing, to developing voice and proofreading. Rooted in the Benedictine Hallmarks, the Writing Center provides a welcoming, nonjudgmental, and constructive environment in which students improve their writing habits and skills. By celebrating individuality, equality, and collaboration, the Writer Center is committed to each unique individual and the Saint Vincent community overall.
The primary objective of the SVC Writing Center is to help students improve their writing. Students are expected to attend consultations with a clear goal—not necessarily a developed thought or draft but at least an idea or a question. Students should arrive at the consultation on time and ready to think and engage with the consultant. Writing consultation is not one-sided; to be successful, it requires collaboration and active participation.
When you arrive for your writing consultation:
The consultants are trained to provide students a welcoming, goal-orientation session that leaves the student feeling accomplished.
