The Horldt Family Writing Center, located in C305 of the Taubman Student Services Center, assists students with their writing needs. We are staffed by faculty members and help students at any point in the writing process. Our goal is to improve the student writer and stress the importance of the writing process within all disciplines.

We offer one-on-one tutor sessions to address planning, developing, and revising written work. In addition to these sessions, the writing center facilitates the KCP Writing Workshop Fridays events. These workshops correspond to the writing assignments students have in the Core Curriculum.

The writing center also operates a summer workshop series the week before the fall semester. The nine-hour workshop better prepares students for academic writing and focuses on analysis and argument.

The Horldt Family Writing Center operates fall, spring, and summer semesters; students can contact us through our Canvas page, at writingcenter@ltu.edu, or drop by C305.
