Writing is a central component of the academic lives of students and faculty at Millsaps College, and engaging in conversation about one's writing is an essential step in the writing process. The Millsaps Writing Center is here to engage writers in conversation that illuminates the writing process and stimulates idea generation and critical thinking.
The Writing Center is located in John Stone Hall, next to Reuben's.
Some of the most frequently discussed topics during sessions with a Writing Center tutor include:
The Millsaps Writing Center serves all writers in the Millsaps Community. Our tutors are eager to work with writers at all stages in the writing process and of all writing levels and abilities. From your first essay to your senior seminar project, a conversation with a Writing Center tutor can help writers reach their goals, refine their ideas, and develop helpful writing habits.
In addition to academic writing such as essays, research papers, lab reports, and project proposals, writers are encouraged to bring any text they are working on to the Writing Center for feedback and conversation. These texts might include cover letters, personal statements, resumes, memos, Power Point slides, or oral presentations.
