Mission Statement for The Writing Studio
The Writing Studio at Rowan College at Gloucester County helps students improve their writing across disciplines and genres. We parallel the College’s larger mission of promoting “intellectual and cultural enrichment, individual achievement and professional development.” To that end, The Writing Studio seeks to demystify the writing process and empower student writers to develop effective strategies for any writing situation. We strive to help create a campus culture in which student learning continues beyond the classroom.
The Writing Studio maintains a staff of writing coaches who help students communicate effectively in their writing. Students can stop by the Academic Support Center, to work with a writing coach for a 30 minute session. The Writing Studio offers drop-in writing coaching; no appointments necessary. The Studio offers assistance on a first come first served basis, so there may be a wait during high volume times.
The Online eWriting Lab in eTutoring allows students to submit a draft of a paper to a tutor, ask for specific feedback, and receive a tutor's response within 24-48 hours. To access this service, click the link below.
