What writers and their professors are saying about the Writers' Workshop:
"You went above and beyond in helping me understand why I should have "there" instead of "their" and the difference between "then" and "than."
"I want to thank you for all the help you have offered to me in my papers and speeches. I have gotten better at correcting myself when I write or put together a speech."
"I take pleasure in the Writing Center and have done excellently every time I get help there."
"I got an A in the class and added value to the class, [my instructor] said."
"I really appreciate you taking so much time to give students the personal attention they need."
