Welcome to the COM Writing Center.

So you want to become a better writer? That takes hard work – and feedback from experienced writers, like the COM Writing Center staff.

Need help structuring a news story? Shaping a script? Developing a PR campaign? We can guide you on any COM-related writing. Our Writing Fellows are all graduate students in communication.

If you need help with adapting to writing in English, we have an ESL specialist. All of our tutors are trained to address common writing issues international students face.

Our Philosophy

The COM Writing Center’s mission is to assist writers in the writing process, from brainstorming for ideas to revising the final draft. Because writing is a process and it is the writer’s paper, we encourage dynamic sessions between writer and tutor.


Inside the COM Writing Center

Students go to the College of Communication Writing Center for help from peers with grammar, structure and cohesiveness. The guidance helps students refine their writing style and build confidence in their abilities.
