Writing Center

The Writing Center, located in Miller Hall 103, offers free, individualized help on writing assignments of any kind.

We view writing as a process that involves planning, reading, drafting, revising, and editing—with certain projects requiring more time spent in the drafting/revising stages than others. Writing with substance usually involves discovering your meaning through brainstorming, sharing, and getting lots of feedback. In other words, we view writing as work—sometimes frustrating, often enriching, and always worth the effort.

The Center is staffed by DelVal students from various majors who will help you learn more about writing, let you see your work from a fresh perspective, and help you appreciate the process a little more than you did before. We assist with all stages of writing: choosing a topic or working through writer’s block, sharpening a thesis, arranging and organizing paragraphs, creating an outline, citing correctly and fluently, editing grammar and mechanics, and more.

DelVal Student Writing Conference
Student Writing Conference

The Student Writing Conference is an all-inclusive, interdisciplinary annual celebration of writing that showcases outstanding student writing in all of its various forms and genres. Students of every major are encouraged to submit any critical or creative writing—essays, personal narratives, 100-word memoirs, poetry, short fiction, etc.—that they are interested in sharing with the campus community. Students are organized into smaller panels according to genre/form to read their work aloud to audience members, which is followed by a conversational Q&A session moderated by a DelVal faculty member. Food and refreshments are available during the opening and closing sessions. Reach out to michael.stamps@delval.edu for more information.
