English Writing Center

Saint Louis University’s English Writing Center is located on the first floor of Padre Rubio Hall. The goal of the writing center is to continue the work of the core writing program in providing students with tools to meet challenges in writing assignments throughout their university careers.

Bring with you to the center any assignment specifications from your professor and a rubric, if there is one. You must also bring a hard copy of your work (or a soft copy on your laptop) and be prepared to work together with the consultant on making your writing more effective for your audience and purpose.

Sessions are limited to 20 minutes per visit; if you need more time, you are welcome to return to work on the same assignment when no other students are waiting or by scheduling an appointment.

Students can either:
