Writing Studio


The Shippensburg University Writing Studio:

  • empowers writers to effectively articulate ideas through oral and written communication for different purposes, audiences, and contexts
  • believes that all writers benefit from collaboratively discussing their work with an interested, supportive reader
  • works with writers across all disciplines at any stage in the writing process
  • provides a welcoming atmosphere
  • helps you to critically evaluate texts and logically develop your ideas
  • seeks to help you improve your writing proficiency and build confidence through collaborative dialogue

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

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