Meet with a writing coach to receive help with brainstorming, structuring a paper, improving grammar, editing, properly citing sources and more. Writing Lab services are free for MBU students.
Spring 2013 schedule:
Click here to schedule an appointment or contact the Writing Lab at 314-392-2364 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bring a hard copy of your assignment and guidelines to your writing lab session. Contact us if you need to cancel or reschedule your session.
Please keep in mind that your writing coach will not edit or write your paper for you. Although your main objective may be to perfect one assignment, we hope to strengthen your skills for the challenging papers you have yet to write.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your writing appointment, please call (314) 392-2364. If you miss more than one appointment a semester without contacting us ahead of time, we reserve the right to refuse future service.
“Thank you very much for your comments throughout my paper; they were very insightful, and for the most part, I had not even thought about some of the points you brought up. So, I appreciate your recommendations for the ways in which to make my philsophy stronger.”
– Kim P.
“Thank you so much for your feedback! I truly do enjoy the tips and advice you give. Organizing my writing has always been the biggest struggle in my mind, and I am always second guessing where to put certain topics so the papers flow. I will take all of your advice and revise my paper accordingly. Thank you again for all your help!” – Kari L.

The Writing Lab offers the option to submit a paper online for students at MBU’s satellite locations. Writing coaches will read up to five pages of your paper and sent it back as a Word attachment via e-mail in about three business days. Writing coaches do not proofread or edit papers, but will identify patterns and provide feedback to aid the writing process. Please limit your online submissions to three papers per semester.
