Welcome to the Writing Center.

We offer on-campus live sessions in the Writing Center, live Zoom sessions, and online submission for asynchronous feedback.

The Writing Center is located on the second floor of the Munday Library, across the bridge.

Strong writing and communication abilities are an essential outcome of your St. Edward’s education. These lifelong skills are highly valued in every career field. The St. Edward’s University Writing Center is here to support you in strengthening your written communications. We assist students, faculty, staff and alumni in their growth as writers in an environment of collaboration, not instruction.
