Writing Center

Need help with your writing? We’re right here!

At the IUP Punxsutawney Writing Center, you can get help with your writing, not only with papers and assignments for courses, but also with resumes, cover letters, and job and scholarship applications. Writers of all abilities can get assistance at the Writing Center. It’s a place to talk things over one-on-one in a relaxed atmosphere. We can help you get started, make suggestions for revision, or even help you become a better proofreader of your own work.

English graduate student Kathleen (Katie) Kymes is the Writing Center’s new mentor and assistant director. Community volunteer Jane Murphy and peer tutor La’Neir Corbett are also serving as Writing Center mentors this year.

The Writing Center is located in the Oasis Room on the second floor of the Learning Center in room 222.
