Beside You All the Way
Antioch University provides writing support for students during their academic journey both locally and virtually. By developing their writing skills, students will improve their work and gain new confidence in their abilities.
The Robert Dizney Writing Center offers assistance to students by appointment or walk-in visits. For electronic submissions, check out the Virtual Writing Center.
We offer support for ALL stages of the writing process:
- Outlining Research: It’s common for students to research a topic and yet struggle to write their paper. Talking to a writing center tutor before writing a paper can help the student discover the main points they want to make.
- Understanding Assignments: Never written an annotated bibliography before? Unsure of how to create an abstract for a large paper? Writing center tutors can walk students through the format and content of an assignment.
- Writing Revisions: Tutors can help students polish a writing assignment that’s been returned with requests for revision.
- Creative Writing: Need someone to give honest feedback on a creative piece? Writing center tutors can offer students feedback on fiction or nonfiction as well as academic work.
- Grammar & Punctuation: If students are struggling with particular writing problems, they can visit the writing center to develop those areas of writing.
- Citing Resources: Tutors can assist in formatting resources in MLA and APA citation styles.

REMINDER: The writing center is not open on days the university is closed. This includes holidays and cancellations due to weather.
The Antioch University Virtual Writing Center is a dynamic space for both students and faculty to enter conversations about writing. We consciously use “best practices” around writing support, offering Antioch University students a robust menu of resources, access to peer tutoring in both synchronous and asynchronous formats, and consultations with faculty specialists. Antioch University’s Virtual Writing Center extends and complements the campus-based writing centers in offering AU students writing resources and quality feedback on their writing no matter when they need it.
Students may submit their writing for feedback from trained AU peer consultants or use any of the resources that have been developed at Antioch University. All blogs, resources, and videos about writing have been generated by AU faculty or graduate students working in the VWC. Through our partnership with eTutoring.org, students may submit questions, receive feedback from a peer tutor as well as schedule live virtual conversations, or echats, with a faculty consultant or GA peer tutor.
The VWC is fundamentally an Antioch resource, and we are committed to ensuring that the VWC reflects AU ideals and our practices. We are eager to hear from AU students about their experiences. Along with automatic surveys, we also accept emails at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not hesitate to offer ideas for future materials and provide us with any other suggestions for our growth.
