Our Mission Statement

The Shippensburg University Writing Studio empowers undergraduate and graduate writers to effectively articulate ideas through oral and written communication for different purposes, audiences, and contexts.

We believe that all writers benefit from collaboratively discussing their work with an interested, supportive reader.

We work with writers across all disciplines at any stage in the writing process.

We endeavor to provide a welcoming atmosphere for you to critically evaluate texts, logically develop your ideas, and improve your writing proficiency and confidence through collaborative dialogue.

Because our goal is to help you improve your writing, we avoid simply proofreading or editing texts, thereby helping you learn more about writing and maintain authority over their own writing.

We believe one’s ability to improve in writing never ceases; therefore, we encourage writers to visit frequently throughout the writing process.
