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 Lara Hauer is the Writing Center’s mentor and assistant director. 

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

    Sponsored Activities

    The Writing Center sponsors a variety of activities on campus. Join us in writing for the local newspaper, or attend one of our workshops or poetry events.
