University Writing Center

Morgan State University Writing Center: Cultivating the Critical Thinker, Writer, Reader, and Researcher in You

The Writing Center is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The Writing Center is staffed with trained tutors who will assist you with your work during a one-on-one consultation.


Under the auspices of the Department of English and Language Arts, the mission of the Morgan State University Writing Center is to support undergraduate and graduate students from all academic disciplines to become more effective and confident writers and communicators. It is a place where students may come to discuss their work, clarify their ideas, and improve their writing skills.

The Writing Center is staffed with trained tutors who will assist you with your work during a one-on-one consultation. Please see the Scheduling an Appointment and Frequently Asked Questions pages for more information about our tutorial consultation process.

According to Leigh Ryan (University of Maryland), tutoring is a collaborative activity. Ryan believes the most successful sessions are achieved by preparing for the visit:  

First, schedule an appointment in advance of your assignment's due date. Second, think about what you need from a session and make some notes.  For example, list specific questions you have about your paper. Third, bring with you a copy of your assignment sheet and any related notes, handouts, articles, or textbooks. Fourth, bring any other writing you may have connected to the assignment, like drafts, notes, free writing, journal entries, or peer review comments. 

Although we accept walk-ins, appointments are preferred.  Schedule a one-on-one tutorial session by sending an email to writingcenter@morgan.edu with your availability.
