The Writing Center is now online during campus closure! 

Make an appointment here:

  • At the start of your appointment time, a writing consultant will contact you via your Eckerd gmail account; you will receive either an email or an invitation to join Google Meet. 
    • If it's an email, the tutor will ask you to share your essay as a Google Doc, and you will receive comments back within the hour. 
    • If you receive a request for a Google Meet, you'll join the meeting, and the consultant will prompt you from there. (Make sure to turn your microphone and camera on.)The Importance of Writing

What are the issues facing writing in the 21st century? How does one even write in this age of status updates, tweets, hashtags, and snapchat? How do you navigate the demands of effective, engaging written communication?  The Writing Excellence Program at Eckerd College helps students develop the ability to negotiate different topics as a writer, analyze arguments of others, effectively communicate arguments yourself, collaborate on ideas, and practice making choices about what, how, and why to communicate with others.
