Villanova Writing Center

Individual writing with pen

The Villanova Writing Center provides a comfortable atmosphere for your one-to-one session with a qualified tutor. Bring your paper, assignment, and an open mind and we'll do our best to help you improve your writing. 

What We Do

  • Aid students in a collaborative effort of creating their "ideal texts" and producing their best quality work.
  • We are NOT a "fix-it shop" and seek to "produce better writers, not better texts."
  • We encourage multiple, independent visits for all types of students, in all stages of their writing.
  • We cater to individual student needs and rely on the effective relationship of peer tutoring. All are welcome.
  • Tuesday, Feb. 8—Trim the Fat: Making Your Writing More Concise
  • Monday, Feb. 21— Overcoming Writing Anxiety
  • Tuesday, Mar. 8— Who’s Afraid of the MLA?
  • Tuesday, Mar. 22—The Art of Revision
  • Thursday, Apr. 7—Building Counter Arguments

All workshops are at 7:30 p.m. in 210 Falvey Library, The Writing Center. Students receive a certificate of attendance and a handout for future reference.

Writing Center appointments are scheduled for 50 minutes. For lengthy papers (generally over ten pages), we suggest you schedule a block of 2 sessions for your appointment.
