Writing Lab

Learn more about MBU

Meet with a writing coach to receive feedback on any part of your writing process from brainstorming to revision. We use the writing-as-thinking and writing-as-conversation approaches to help you critically think about your topic and add to what others have said about your topic. We believe you are a writer, so we treat your writing as meaningful scholarship in the Writing Lab. Writing Lab services are free for MBU students.
