The Writing Center
The mission of the Writing Center is to equip Wesley seminarians for the rigors of critical reading, analytical thinking, and expository writing for theological education. In collaboration with Wesley faculty across the curriculum, our goal is to develop writers to publish in the academy, in parish ministry, and as public theologians.

Writer's Swag Bag
Wesley realizes that no two students require identical writing support. Therefore, the Writing Center integrates course instruction, workshops, office consultations, and online resources to equip students with writing tools particular to their needs. Discover and use academic writing helps in the Writer's Swag Bag. Accessible online and when the Writing Center staff is unavailable, you may find these tools most helpful to avert writer's block, revise drafts, develop academic vocabulary, and avoid plagiarism.
Ethos, Logos, Pathos
The Writing Center:
- does not edit. We are available to teach you how to self-edit using academic writing tools.
- does not proofread. We will, however, point you to grammar helps and style guides for academic writing.
- is a support for your success. Your careful and timely adherence to the syllabi guarantees your success!
Writing Center faculty will extend one opportunity for students to revise a paper which fails the plagiarism identification software programmed into Blackboard. We elect to regard the first and sole failure as a teachable moment. However, repeat and blatant instances of plagiarism will be reported to the Dean for disciplinary action. Besides, you don't have to plagiarize--you're too smart for that! #justdontdoit [more]
