Writing Commons

Writing Commons @ KSU

The writing commons is located on the 4th Floor in the Library. Here, students can get help with any writing related questions. Sessions typically last 30-45 minutes depending on the goals the student has for the session; these may include editing your paper for clarity and language related issues such as spelling and grammar.  Students can schedule an in-person appointment, online writing lab appointment or an online Google Chat appointment. Please visit the link above for more information and resources at the Writing Commons.
