MU Writing Center

From the Marian University Writing Center Web Site:

Whether you’d like to sound out ideas before moving them from mind to paper, wish to discuss strategies for clarifying and developing written thoughts, or want extra help in charting revisions and edits, Marian University Writing Center tutors are eager to work with you.   

Walk-ins are always welcome to meet with a Writing Center peer tutor at Clare Hall 021 or at our other campus satellite locations. However, appointments may be created by visiting our online scheduler below and are suggested (especially during peak demand times).

All writers— even those who are not Marian students — are invited to learn about and take advantage of the services offered by the Writing Center.

Appointments can be made online. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are suggested. High school students and Indianapolis community members may also schedule an appointment with us.
