Writing Center
We believe Writing Consultants can best serve the Mills community by increasing students’ skills and confidence in their writing. At the Writing Center, students can obtain guidance and feedback on any and all aspects of writing, such as:
  • Brainstorming and idea development
  • Discussing approaches for outlining
  • Developing and organizing papers
  • Considering clarity of language and ideas
  • Developing a strong thesis
  • Discussing strategies for revision
  • Improving grammar and punctuation
  • Effectively using style and tone
  • Honing editing and proofreading skills
  • Citing evidence/sources appropriately

Feel free to visit the Writing Center even if you’re unsure about how to begin a writing assignment or find yourself “stuck” during the process. You can also work with the Center for feedback on creative writing projects as well.

While the Writing Center provides individual writing consultations, please keep in mind the following policies:

  • Consultants aim to engage you in conversation about your writing and enable you to make changes, but are not permitted to proofread or “fix” it on your behalf
  • Consultants may assist with take-home essay exams only if your professor has provided written permission or contacted the Center directly
  • Consultants will not grade assignments or predict grades
  • While Consultants do not interpret ideas or readings on your behalf, we can help you think about ways to further examine and clarify your own ideas
