The Marshall University Writing Center is staffed with graduate and undergraduate students ready to help you at any stage of the writing process. Tutors can be consulted on any writing assignment from any discipline.

The Marshall University Writing Center also partners with the Marshall University librarians. The “Research Librarian” tutor helps with the research aspect of writing (including citation methods). If you are struggling to understand how to work with sources or are simply curious about the resources available through our libraries, make a special appointment with the tutor designated as “Research Librarian.”*

*Please note that research librarians are only available for library instruction; they are unable to help with questions regarding the writing process itself.
