Writing Center Location:

  • The Main Campus Writing Center is located in the lower level of Carlson Library (0130) across from the Learning Enhancement Center (LEC).

Writing Consultations:

The Writing Center provides support to writers within the University of Toledo community. We can help on ANY writing project!


Writing Consultants help by:

  • discussing an assignment with the writer in order to encourage understanding and clarification of the writing task
  • determining where writing can use improvement and how the writer can revise their work effectively   
  • generating ideas, notes, and outlines with the writer and helping the writer develop a plan for his/her project which is focused on a particular audience
  • engaging a conversation with writers about their ideas and desires for their project
  • asking questions that guide a writer to consider changes that will help them to communicate effectively    
  • offering explanation of the writing process and assisting students at all stages of that process

What can a writer do to make a visit to the Writing Center most productive? check in

  • Bring a copy of the assignment
  • Bring a draft of the paper/writing assignment
  • Share with the tutor your goals for your session: grammar, argumentation, citation, support, etc. 
  • Come early in the process of writing so we can provide help before a writer becomes lost, stuck, or overwhelmed; longer and more complex assignments take more time to read and review so the writer should come to the Center at least a week in advance.
