About Writing Resources
Writing Resources serves as Berea College’s writing center. It assists students, faculty, and staff with all types of writing at any stage of the writing process. Consultants can assist understanding assignments, brainstorming, organization, flow, language mechanics, and APA, MLA, and Chicago style formatting, and citation. From personal writing to lab reports, trained student writing consultants can help work past your writing concerns and questions. Our consultants work at the Center for Teaching and Learning as part of the student labor program at the College. They are trained to assist Berea students in writing as well as all other forms of communication. Consultants must complete a half-credit course during their first semester and complete ongoing training throughout their time with Writing Resources.
Consultations are 50 minutes long and begin at the top of the hour. Students may make up to three appointments per week. We welcome walk-ins provided we have an open consultant, but we encourage you to make appointments at berea.mywconline.com. Your consultant will greet you, ask about the assignment, and set goals with you for the session. Our consultations are conversational; that is, our consultants will not “just edit” the paper for you. Instead, they will speak with you about why you made the choices you did to help you improve as a writer.
Other Services and Resources
In addition to one-to-one writing assistance, Writing Resources also offers a variety of services for the student and professor.
