Welcome to the Writing Center.

We are happy to announce that we are returning to on-campus live sessions in the Writing Center as of Fall 2023. We will continue to offer Zoom sessions and online submission.

The Writing Center is located on the second floor of the Munday Library, across the bridge.

Strong writing and communication abilities are an essential outcome of your St. Edward’s education. These lifelong skills are highly valued in every career field. The St. Edward’s University Writing Center is here to support you in strengthening your written communications. We assist students, faculty, staff and alumni in their growth as writers in an environment of collaboration, not instruction.
