The Writing Center offers a range of services and resources to help you develop the writing and language skills you need to succeed both in and outside of school.
If you are visiting the Writing Center for the first time, we recommend that you read our guide for first-time visitors and watch our introductory video:
- One to-one sessions: Our core service is a 50-minute, one-to-one consultation. During the session, you can brainstorm, ask questions, and practice your writing skills with the help of a professional writing consultant. For the 2020-21 academic year, all one-to-one appointments will held synchronously via our online scheduler through video, audio, or text-only chat.
- Written Feedback: You can also get writing help by email through our Written Feedback service. To request asynchronous Written Feedback, upload your draft to our online scheduler with 2-3 questions about the writing issues most important to you. We’ll reply via email with comments and suggestions to guide your next steps. For the 2020-21 academic year, you can opt into our video feedback pilot, where you’ll receive a short video explanation in addition to written comments.
- Workshops: If you’re interested in practicing a specific academic or professional writing skill, you can register for an interactive 75-minute online workshop through our events calendar. For the 2020-21 academic year, all workshops will be facilitated synchronously via Zoom.
- Writing Group facilitation: If you have an established writing group (a consistent group of people who meet to work on the same or different writing projects together), you can request a writing group facilitator for your writing group using our online form.
Our online resources
- Baruch writing guides: Our online writing guides are available 24/7 to help you work independently on a range of writing skills. These resources focus on topics that are particularly useful for Baruch students, from analysis and argument to business writing to English language acquisition.
- The Lexington Review: The Writing Center publishes a journal of exemplary Baruch student writing called The Lexington Review. These pieces offer strong models of writing across different disciplines, from Great Works essays to business writing to admissions applications. You can also submit or nominate a piece of writing to be included in the journal.
Working on a long-term research project such as a capstone or thesis requires consistency and focus. The Writing Center offers flexible support, including recurring and extended sessions, for students who are working on long-term research projects. You can request support for your long-term research project using our online form.
The Writing Center is committed to supporting and advocating for Baruch students with disabilities. You can request accommodations for your Writing Center sessions by completing our accommodations request form, emailing the Writing Center’s Director at email@example.com, or calling 646.312.4012.
