The Writing Zone

The Writing Zone at Benedictine is for everyone! There are many resources available to you for writing help at every stage of the writing process: choosing a topic, brainstorming ideas, researching, drafting, revisions, editing, and finalizing.

Tips to Help Us Help You

  • Come to us with your best writing. If you come with your best, we can build your writing skills beyond where they currently are.
  • Don’t wait until the last minute. If you get a prompt for a paper and you need help, come see us right away.  If you wait until the last minute, we might not have enough time to help.
  • Remember the goal is your independence.  We will not simply fix your papers for you because we want to help you build your skills so you eventually don’t need anyone like us. It CAN happen.
