Writing often and writing well ensure your success not only at Miami but in your professional and public careers. No matter what you're studying, from anthropology to zoology and every discipline in between, Miami offers unparalleled support for you to practice and perfect your writing.

Introducing the Howe Writing Center: supporting Miami University writers. How can the Howe Writing Center help? At the Howe Writing Center, our consultants, both graduate and undergraduate, can help you with any kind of writing. We specialize in writing assignments from any course, individual and group projects, lab reports, theses and dissertations, writing for multimodal projects, personal writing, resumes, cover letters, personal statements, and writing for your organizations at any stage of the writing process.

So what should you expect? In a Howe Writing Center consultation, you can expect to discuss your writing concerns, work with a consultant to plan a session, receive assistance in making decisions about your writing, as well as plan for writing in the future. Consultations can last up to 45 minutes, and you can expect to receive an email summarizing your consultation after the session.

Here's what not to expect. Don't expect to drop off your writing and pick it up later. Instead, be prepared to work with the consultant. Also don't expect that the consultant will fix your writing for you by making line-by-line corrections. Instead, the consultant will help you identify areas for improvement and help you learn how to correct them. Lastly, don't expect that a consultant will make decisions about your writing for you. Instead you will have a discussion about possible options, and you will make the final decision about your writing.

To schedule your consultation, go to our homepage. Besides consultations, the Howe Writing Center also provides:

  • Resume blasts, or drop-in resume consultations the night before Career Fair and Spring ICE, free pizza included.
  • Support for student orgs, such as writing-specific workshops to your group.
  • Or help promoting your own writing events. And much more.

The Howe Writing Center also sponsors writing contests throughout the academic year.
