Writing Support

Schedule a Session with a Writing Specialist! 

The Writing Center is a free writing support for Newcomb-Tulane Undergraduate students. We provide students with assistance on papers in the English language for most non-science and non-business undergraduate courses.  The Writing Center tutors can work with students on several general writing skills, including, but not limited to:

  • Content
  • Organization
  • Language
  • Generation of Ideas
  • Documentation

The Writing Center aims to serve students at the undergraduate level by assisting them with their non-business writing assignments. The Writing Center is not a proofreading service. Writing Center tutors do not review/edit the following:

  • Essays written for Graduate/Professional classes, conferences, or publications
  • Master’s or Doctoral theses
  • Articles written for publication in the Hullabaloo, Gambit, Offbeat, etc.
  • Graduate School Application essays
  • Personal statements
  • Take-home exams
  • Essays written for classes in the Freeman School of Business at any level

What to Bring?

  • Your instructor’s e-mail address
  • A printed copy of the essay
  • All materials related to the assignment (the assignment prompt, comments from the instructor, drafts, notes, peer review sheets, etc…)

Please arrive at least five minutes before your scheduled appointment and be prepared to discuss the essay and answer the tutor’s questions about it. Writing appointments must be canceled at least 24 hours in advance.  There is a $20 no-show fee for late cancellations.
