About Us

The Brenau University Writing Center, a peer-tutoring service, offers individualized writing conferences and group workshops for students across disciplines and, through the Online Writing Center, across campuses. The Writing Center supports the university's goal to foster intellectual and professional accomplishment as it helps students develop their ability to communicate articulately in writing or speech.

The Writing Center is a free service available to all Brenau students. Our trained undergraduate and graduate-level peer tutors come from a diverse range of disciplines.

The Graduate Writing Service is a fee-based service available for graduate students who wish to work with a professional editor. A link can be found on the Writing Center’s Intranet page.

Located in Room 112 of the Trustee Library, the Writing Center is staffed by trained peer tutors who are ready to help students at any point in the writing process. Students receive individualized feedback during one-on-one conferences, which are available by appointment or during walk-in hours.

Tutors tailor each conference to the writer’s individual needs and the assignment requirements. Prewriting, thesis statement development, grammar, quotation integration, style and usage, and citations are only a few of the topics our tutors cover. Whether a student needs to brainstorm for a research paper or polish a presentation, the Writing Center can help.      

Appointments typically last 30 minutes and can be scheduled by calling or visiting the Writing Center online.


For students who cannot visit the  on-ground Writing Center, the Online Writing Center offers the same individualized feedback, just with Google Docs.

On the Writing Center’s Intranet page, students will find links to submission and evaluation forms and directions for submitting work via Google Docs.

Students can expect to receive a tutor’s feedback within 48 hours. To submit a paper longer than ten pages, students should email the Writing Center for an estimated response time.
