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. We call the process of discovering and using personalized writing helps as the Writer's Swag Bag.
Throughout the year, form guides, citation helps, grammar gifts, and a hoard of handouts for writers will be uploaded to this space. All Wesley seminarians will have access to this information and are encouraged to download what you need for writing assignments and research. Collecting your writing tools in one location facilitates them being accessible when you need them most!
Start with Critical Thinking for Critical Writing for a visual course in questions to answer for a critically engaging paper. Scan or download In Other Words* synonym helps to advance your argument; and replicate GO! graphic organizers to guide paper readability. Bookmark Writing Resources from other excellent writing programs.
