Hello, Dons!

This is your campus Writing Center. And you’ve found our blog. Welcome!

We’ve been working hard to plan, curate, and write ideas that will simplify tricky concepts and make writing papers easier for you.

Why should you check in on our blog?

Well, first of all, we’ll give you our insiders’ tips and tricks to writing essays and assignments. Here, you’ll find the invaluable experiences of IPFW students who excel at writing, our mistakes and our strengths.

We’ll introduce you to valuable campus resources and online tools–as well as show you why to shy away from shortcuts that you may be guilty of using.

If you don’t know the difference between APA, MLA, and Chicago Style, you’re in the right place to get started! How about the difference between a textual and rhetorical analysis? We’ve broken all of those down and will answer questions we’ve frequently heard from students like you.

You can also learn all about our student staff here. We’ve recently welcomed a big, new batch of consultants and graduate assistants. Check out our Meet the Team page to put faces and fun facts with names!

We’ll showcase faculty that you may not have known have strong backgrounds in writing. Interviews and tips straight from campus professors will be posted right here on the blog throughout the semester!

We’ll share details about cool events and activities that the Writing Center is putting on too. Never before has the IPFW Writing Center had such a cool year ahead. The 2017 – 2018 academic year is our 25th year at IPFW, and we plan to celebrate, so check back here for information on how we plan to celebrate with you!

Of course, you can always see info on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, so follow us on your preferred platform!

This semester might just be our best yet, and we’d love to help make it yours too.

Welcome to The Draft!

🙂 ,

Your Writing Center Staff
