The Charles Mills Writing Center

The Writing Center is open and available for use by the entire Nazareth Community. Our primary goal is provide verbal feedback about writing projects to help you identify what the next step is in your writing process. Meetings are limited to 30 minutes per revision, but you can discover a lot in such a short time.

Bring your paper or draft in early with enough time before it is due to perform a substantial revision. Bringing the paper in a couple of hours before it is due can be very stressful if you discover a lot of work still needs to be done.
