Welcome to the Writing Center
The St. Edward's University Writing Center, located on the second floor of the Munday Library, helps students, faculty, staff, and alumni grow as writers. The Writing Center allows you to discuss, experiment with, and practice writing with faculty and professional readers outside of class. The best way to learn about what the Writing Center does is to try it yourself.
The Writing Center can help during any part of the writing process and with any writing task. In-person appointments meet in the Writing Center rooms on the second floor of the Munday Library. The tables in the Writing Center are for students waiting for appointments and for Writing Center staff use only.
Students who can't make it to an in-person appointment can meet with us by Google Hangout videoconference or submit drafts for written responses.
To check for available appointments, schedule an appointment, or cancel an appointment, please use TutorTrac, our online scheduling app. For help navigating TutorTrac, please use this step-by-step walkthrough. To submit a draft online, use our submission form.
