The NSU Writing Center, Write from the Start

The NSU Write from the Start Writing and Communication Center (WCC) is an innovative workspace where students, consultants, and faculty come together, in person and online, to talk about writing and communication.

Staffed by trained professional and peer writing consultants, the WCC offers individualized writing and communication assistance to all NSU students. Students are welcome to work with us on all types of academic writing and communication projects, including (but not limited to) essays, research projects, lab reports, reflections, multimodal projects, theses, dissertations, and presentations (oral and poster).

Our consultants can offer assistance during all stages of the process, from brainstorming and developing ideas to editing final products. Specifically, they will discuss your assignments, listen to your ideas, ask you questions, talk about writing strategies, and offer constructive feedback. In short, they will help you develop stronger writing habits. For more information go to:
