Welcome to the Writing Studio!

Welcome to the Writing Studio page! The act of writing is often imagined as an activity that writers do on their own. Yet, the writers who grow are the ones who seek feedback and practice with other writers. At the Longview Writing Studio, we want to offer you a chance to talk through your writing assignments with a peer writer, who is professionally trained to show you how to revise more effectively as well as gain more confidence as you write. We are eager and ready to help you with any writing assignment from any of your classes, and we hope we have the chance to watch you become a more skilled, capable, and inspired writer.

Mission Statement for the Writing Studio

The mission of the Longview Student Success Center – Tutoring program is to promote student learning, enhance the chances for student success, and contribute to student retention through academic support inside and outside of the classroom.

What to Expect When Meeting with an Writing Tutor

A session with a Writing Studio tutor always begins with questions about how you are doing, what writing assignment you are working on, and how confident you feel about the writing assignment that you are working on. Then, we listen to your description of how you are doing as a student and/or writer as well as what progress you have made or want to make in your writing. Next, we will talk with you about the answers you give to these questions. Concerning your draft, we may ask where your main ideas are, what you mean in a particular sentence, or even what you like the most in your writing. By the end of the session, we hope we offer some action steps for where to revise further in your writing as well as a better sense of your writing skills. Whenever possible, please have your writing assignment and its directions ready to screen share with us at the beginning of the session, and whenever needed, feel free to chat with us any important information, too. In fact, the tutors are happy to brainstorm how to begin writing. We look forward to talking with you soon!
