Writing Associates at Oberlin College

Writing Associates at Oberlin College

Trained writing associates are available most evenings in Mudd 101A to provide advice about writing.

Hours for the center are posted on the Writing Associates website.

Writing associates are trained to provide assistance with all stages of the writing process, from the selection of the topic through final editing. They can help the writer define an appropriate topic, develop research strategies, organize material, analyze drafts for strengths and weaknesses, revise, edit, and so forth. Please note that it is best to consult with a writing associate as early as possible in the writing process for a given assignment. Last minute consultations are usually less effective.

All writers, from basic to advanced, are encouraged to make use of the writing center. No appointment is necessary, and there is no charge for the service.
