The Writing Studio

We're not here because you can't write; we're here because you do!

A student gets help in the Writing Studio

The Writing Studio is here to help you perfect what you already do well. It is a place where you can get a new perspective on your writing style and content, to share your thoughts with others who want to help you succeed, and to refresh your memory of the rules of Standard American English. Instead of editing your work as you sit and watch, we assist you in refining and developing your ideas in an interactive process. We do not promise better grades. Instead, we cultivate a new-found confidence in your own abilities. A “writing studio” by definition is a place of creativity, empathy, and growth, but more importantly it is a place for all writers and all types of writing.

We look forward to meeting to discuss your project.To make an appointment for the Writing Studio, go to http://lipscomb.mywconline.com.

We also have supplemental handouts you may share and download for your own use.

I hope to one day work in the publishing industry as a marketing specialist, and I am very excited to assist in the Writing Studio this semester.

Tyler Worden

Hello! My name is Tyler Worden, and I’m a sophomore Acting major with minors in Playwriting and Film here at Lipscomb. I’d love to help with any academic or creative writing projects you may have. In fact, I’ve already written a few creative writing projects, including an original one-act comedy called Cure-All and three short films called Floss Fracas, Shutter, and Trio. I like movies, TV, reading, writing (big shocker there), and any and all things Beatles (the band, not the bug). Finally, if you’re reading this, then you’re on the Writing Studio web page, and congrats to you for doing your research!
