About Us

Mission Statement

Our goal is to help students, whatever their level of writing or subject matter, perfect what they already do well in a welcoming, comfortable, and creative atmosphere, with a dedicated staff that will review written work interactively, objectively, and with patience and understanding.

Please be punctual to your appointments, and please be understanding of time restrictions. Appointments begin on the hour and the half-hour. They last either 25 or 50 minutes; it’s your choice! If you are more than 10 minutes late, your appointment will be canceled.Clients may schedule one appointment per day. Our consulting process implies that you will participate and be attentive to errors and suggestions. Please silence your cell phone. Any client who misses three scheduled appointments without canceling will not be allowed to schedule appointments in the Writing Studio for the remainder of the semester. The client should email Stacia Watkins (stacia.watkins@lipscomb.edu) to be reinstated in future semesters.

Prepare for your session

Make sure to bring a hard copy of your writing or bring your computer to the session. You will need the assignment sheet or prompt, as well as a writing utensil to make notes.

What to do when you come to the center

Please sign in on the computer at the front of the ASC. If you have an appointment, our consultants can work with you at the time that your appointment is scheduled. Walk-ins are welcome, but may have to wait for assistance if the studio is busy.

Long-Term Tutoring

The Lipscomb University Writing Studio also offers tutoring for students who wish to improve their writing skills through weekly, hour-long sessions. Long-term tutoring is available for students working on theses/dissertations, general improvement in grammar and punctuation, and test preparation (GRE, PRAXIS, etc.). If you are interested in participating in the Writing Studio's long-term tutoring plan, please print and take the Grammar and Punctuation Diagnostic Tests. Once you have finished the tests, please leave them in the Writing Studio, and contact Student Administrator Katie Sealy at writingcenter.sealy@gmail.com. After you have taken the test, you will be placed with a tutor based on the availability of both client and consultant. If you have questions regarding the tests or long-term tutoring in general, please contact Katie or the Writing Studio Director, Dr. Stacia Watkins.
