Since the writing consultants ask questions and offer suggestions which focus on helping you fully develop your ideas and clearly express the purpose of the draft, we rely on you to understand the complexities of the subject matter. As a result, we are free to focus on the conveyance of your ideas.
The Learning Commons staff consists, in part, of graduate students and faculty writers who are capable of working with writers from all disciplines, at all levels, and at any time in the writing process.
There are multiple ways to begin working with a writing consultant. You can:
- schedule an appointment via your MyBGSU account,
- call the Learning Commons 419-372-2823,
- submit your draft via the OWL,
- or stop by The Learning Commons.
You can also check out the writing resources we have available online.
