Writing Lab

Be a Better Writer

Consult with a writing expert to enhance your writing skills and nail your next project or paper. Writing consultations are available at the Wisconsin Rapids LiNK during regular Writing Lab hours or by contacting by email at emily.janssen@mstc.edu or phone at 715.422.5647.

At this time, in-person writing consultations are only available at the Wisconsin Rapids campus. However, online writing help can be accessed using BrainFuse or by contacting the academic coach.

Writing Lab Hours

Students can drop in at the LiNK to receive writing assistance any time the Writing Lab is open. Arrive anytime within these hours, and leave whenever you need to. If more convenient, you can also make an appointment to meet at other times.

Hours (spring 2018):
  • Tuesdays and Wednesdays • 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
  • Thursdays • 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.


What is a writing consultation like?
We can work from your laptop, a LiNK computer, or a printed draft. We’ll read through your paper together, a little at a time, and discuss what’s working, what you can improve, and how you can improve it.

Do you only help with writing classes?
No! We can help with any writing project, whether it’s for Written Communication or for a class in your program.

My paper isn’t done yet. Can I still come in for help?
Yes! We can help you at any stage of the writing process, from choosing your topic to polishing up your final draft, and everything in between. We love to help with big-picture things like your thesis statement or organization, but we can also help you with proofreading and citing sources.
