Welcome to the SAU Writing Center

The Writing Center, located on the first floor of McKee Library, is a free resource that offers face-to-face writing assistance to current, on-campus Southern students. Student tutors trained in the writing process coach their fellow students in one-on-one sessions to help develop the skills needed to become confident and competent writers.

Each student is allowed one 30-minute session per day. Students with long assignments (ten pages or more) may request a 60-minute session, and we will do our best to accommodate those requests. We encourage you to make an appointment before bringing in your work; however, walk-in sessions are welcome when space is available.

Bring your paper in at any stage, from brainstorming to the final draft. Our tutors are trained to help with essay writing, research papers, book reviews, article critiques, grammar, punctuation, and source citation (APA, MLA, and Chicago styles). While we will not fix your papers for you, we will assist you in learning skills that will help you improve your own writing.

To make the most of your sessions with us, arrive on time to your appointment, bring a typed and printed copy of your assignment, along with your assignment sheet (if available), and be ready to ask specific questions. Plan ahead by making your appointment several days before your assignment is due; you will need time to make revisions, and you may want to return to the Writing Center with another draft. Have reasonable expectations. While you may want an A on your paper, our goal is to help you progress as a writer.
