Writing Commons

Mission Statement: 

  • As the university writing center, the Writing Commons supports KSU students at all levels and in every academic discipline with any projects that include writing.
  • We assist writers at every stage of the composing and revising process.
  • We help writers at every level of proficiency to experience the satisfaction of developing effective written communication. 

All student writers can benefit from the feedback and support the Writing Commons provides.  Visit us to see how we can help you!

"Maybe in a perfect world, all writers would have their own ready auditor . . . who would not only listen but draw them out, ask them questions they would not think to ask themselves.  A writing center is an institutional response to this need."
