Writing Center for the Access Campuses

The Writing Center for the Access Campuses provides one-to-one writing support to Fox Cities and Fond du Lac campus students, both in-person and virtually. We assist at all stages of the process, from brainstorming to making final revisions and everything in between. You can receive help with virtually any type of writing assignment or project. We look forward to working with you!

If you have a draft, we will look at it with the assignment directions and provide feedback on the draft’s organization, clarity, thesis, and structure before commenting on punctuation, word choice, or grammar. Our comments will include a few higher order concerns and a few lower order concerns if there is time. If you don’t have a draft, we will help you understand the assignment and we will help you brainstorm and organize ideas.
