The Writing Lab provides face-to-face and online writing support to university and community clients.  Under the direction of Dr. Jake Gaskins, the tutors in the Writing Lab

  • will help you with your writing at any stage of the process
     (be sure to read ways tutors help);

  • provide help on a drop-in and appointment basis;

  • offer in-class presentations;

  • advise and assist you regarding the 75-Hour Writing Proficiency requirement.

What Writing Lab tutors will NOT do is simply proofread your paper; please read the policy on proofreading.


What to bring with you: 

  • A draft of your paper if you have one - but we can help even before you start writing.

  • The assignment from your instructor.

  • Some idea about the kind of help you need.  Is it comma usage?  Organization?  Reference format?  It's easier for the tutor to help you if you have a clear idea what you're asking for. 

Phone:  (573) 651 - 2159


The Online Writing Lab is available to provide similar services via the web.
