The Writing Center

The Writing Center

The Writing Center is a welcoming, caring space where writers of any kind in the Crete campus community, at any stage of the process, with any writing project can have a conversation about their work with a writing consultant who can help facilitate a discussion and offer constructive feedback in a one-with-one setting. Our hope is to address not only your short-term writing concerns, but to become part of your development as a writer. Bring anything, from an idea in your head or an outline to a complete draft.

The Doane University Writing Center Mission Statement: The Writing Center serves all members of the Doane community by creating and supporting a culture of writing.
Why? Writing is an individual process in many ways, but it's one that benefits from a supportive community. Talking through your writing with a consultant can help make you more conscious of your own writing, revising, and editing power. Consultants are trained undergraduate students, sophomores through seniors, from a variety of disciplines, interests, and backgrounds.


Where? Come visit us in the Communications Building, Room 144: the center is located in its own cozy, private space within the Learning Commons inside Perkins Library. You can also follow us on multiple platforms: InstagramTwitter, & Facebook.

How? Drop-ins are welcome, but preference is given to writers with an appointment. To make an appointment, visit our scheduling system at, and sign in using your Doane email address. You'll need to register in the system on your first visit to the site. If you are using a screen-reader that cannot access the schedule, please email so that we can personally schedule appointments at your convenience.
