Writing Center Mythbusters
MYTH: I need to have something written to go to the Writing Center (WC).
FACT: The WC can help with every stage of writing. You can come to the WC at the very beginning of the writing process--to understand your assignment, to brainstorm ideas, to formulate a thesis, to outline your essay, to familiarize yourself with formatting and citation styles, etc.
MYTH: I need to have a finished product to go to the WC.

MYTH: The WC is only good for checking grammar and punctuation.
FACT: The WC can help with every stage of writing, so we are well-equipped to work with you on organizing your paper, structuring paragraphs, expanding and developing ideas, encouraging you to write clearly and specifically, ensuring you are responding to your assignment, etc.

MYTH: I can drop my paper off at the Writing Center and return to pick it up.

MYTH: The WC will fix my paper and make it perfect.
FACT: The role of any credible WC is not to whip out proofreading glasses and editing pens and correct every single mistake in a paper, but to help you, the student, to gain confidence and sharpen your writing and thinking skills.
