Excel Writing Center


Message from the Director

Kacey Ross, M.A.

The Writing Center is your place for all things writing, and it’s also a great place to study, collaborate, or grab a cup of coffee. We offer individualized writing consultations geared to help you whether you’re brainstorming, planning, drafting, revising, or editing.

If you want to meet with a writing consultant, it’s a good idea to make an appointment (which you can do through the link at the bottom of this page). Otherwise, feel free to drop in and use our resources, one of our lab computers, or the study space.

My office is in the Writing Center, and my door is always open. You’re welcome to stop in to chat anytime. If you’re interested in working in the Writing Center, we can talk about that as well.

The Writing Center is located in Columbine Hall 316. Hope to see you soon.
