Welcome to the California Lutheran University Writing Center. The Writing Center supports all students in becoming more confident and effective writers and communicators. An invaluable academic resource for the CLU community, The Writing Center offers writing support services to all CLU students at any program in any field of study with any writing project at any stage of the writing process.
Please note that writing consultants are trained to encourage independent writers. As such, they will not edit line-by-line or address every page of a lengthy paper (4 or more pages); instead, writing consultants will address issues in prioritized areas of the paper with the student. Students are then expected to apply these skills and tips to the rest of their project independently, following the consultation session. To prepare for your Writing Center appointment, please be ready to articulate a few writing issues you would like to address during your hour with a writing consultant. Bring any relevant materials (the assignment sheet or prompt, notes, drafts, professor feedback, relevant source texts) with you to the session.
