We offer help to a wide range of writers, from freshman to graduate students to members of faculty and community. Our services include individual assistance at all stages of the writing process, including: brainstorming, discovering a thesis, organizing and developing and argument, sentence structure, documentation style, and resumes and letters of application.

We are excited to announce that we now offer online tutoring!

  • Online tutorials will be conducted in real time via the conferencing software Zoom, which is free; you must have Zoom installed on your computer to participate in an online Writing Center tutorial. Your computer must also have microphone and speaker capabilities so that you can speak to and hear the tutor.
  • Appointments are available during regular Writing Center business hours on a first come, first served basis.
  • To make an appointment, email Dr. Judith Coleman, Writing Center Director, at jccoleman@deltastate.edu. Be sure to include your name, Delta State email address, and the time and date you are requesting. Also include the class/professor and assignment you will be working on with us. Dr. Coleman will then let you know by email if your appointment time is available, and if so, will send you a Zoom meeting request via email. All you need to do is follow the Zoom link at the appointed time and have your paper open and ready to share with the tutor via screen sharing. For any technical questions, see zoom.com’s support page or contact Delta State’s OIT department.
