Syllabus Statement

We hope that instructors will tell their students about the Writing Place. For instructors who would like to include information about the Writing Place on their syllabi, we encourage them to use the following statement:

When working on writing assignments for this class, I encourage you to visit the Writing Place, Northwestern’s peer writing center. You will work with juniors and seniors who have been trained to provide you feedback and assistance on any type of writing at any stage in the writing process. They will not edit your work. Rather, they will work with you to brainstorm ideas, organize or outline an essay, clarify your argument, document your sources correctly, or refine grammar and style.
