covid safety protocol

The Writing Center follows all NSU COVID protocols.

Statement on Face Mask Requirement:
Protecting the health and safety of our community is every member's responsiblity. Therefore, properly worn face masks that cover both the nose and mouth are required prior to entry into all academic areas, including the Writing Center.

Because safety is our primary concern, and we want all students to benefit from our services, the Writing Center offers hybrid consultations and workshops to accommodate those who choose to take advantage of our services off-campus.

One-to-one Consultations
 

Writers of all levels and across all disciplines are welcome. Our consultations are designed to provide each student free, individualized writing assistance related to any stage of the writing process and on any type of writing project.  Our professional and accomplished writing consultants will guide you through your writing project. You will begin your consultation by identifying goals for your 30- to 60-minute session.
