Writing Workshop

The Writing Workshop, located on the lower level of Cowles Library in Room 47, serves undergraduate, graduate, and law students who are writing papers and need assistance with individual assignments.

The emphasis of the one-on-one tutoring session is not to fix but to devise actions that the individual can take to improve and to start dealing with writing problems or questions individually. This is a free service to all Drake University students.

The Writing Workshop can help you with: evaluating your habits of reading and writing; learning new strategies appropriate for a particular writing or reading task; making sense of assignments and assigned reading material; coming up with ideas; revising sentence style; resolving problems with word choice, grammar, etc.; revising organization, argument, viewpoint or perspective; overcoming writer’s block.
