Writing Resources

OSU's Writing Center

Located in the Valley Library, the Undergraduate Research and Writing Studio and Graduate Writing Center are relaxed and friendly places where you can work with fellow students who give you concrete feedback and advice on how to improve your writing. Their writing consultants are skilled readers and writers who can help you work on an assignment by assisting you with revising, brainstorming, and/or writers block. They can also answer specific questions about grammer, citing sources, and format. They can provide special assistance with particular writing issues or be the kind of skilled reader who can help improve your work.
