Welcome to the Writing Center @ MSU!

The Writing Center @ MSU is open for appointments. We look forward to working with you!


Writing Center Tabling Services

Are you hosting an upcoming orientation, resource fair, or campus event? Let Writing Center representatives join in on the fun! In doing so, we hope to share the many services offered by our center so that students feel more comfortable accessing them across MSU’s campus.

The Writing Center @ MSU offers tabling services during the summer, fall, and spring semesters depending on availability. To request tabling, please fill out the Tabling Request Form at least 2 weeks in advance to allow time for processing.

When you request Writing Center Tabling at your event, we will send a team of consultants prepared to:

  • Share the services we offer to MSU students (consultations/writing groups/workshops, etc.)
  • Teach students to create WC accounts for scheduling 1:1 writing consultations
  • Discuss student employment opportunities at the WC
  • Engage students with WC Trivia and our prize wheel
  • Give out Writing Center swag!

Please fill out our Google Form to request a tabling team for your upcoming event.

For more information about tabling and to discuss potential collaborations, please email our Workshop/Events Coordinator, Katie Filion, at filionka@msu.edu.

NOTE: Tabling services involves Writing Center representatives setting up a table to talk about what we offer to students and give away swag. If you are looking for representatives to facilitate a specific workshop for your class/event, please see the Workshop Catalog for more details.
