Writing Center PLV
About Pace University’s Pleasantville Writing Center
All writers benefit from individualized attention to their writing and their writing process. For this reason, the Pace University Pleasantville Writing Center works with all writers at any stage of the writing process. Our free writing consultations offer writers individualized support as they negotiate the demands that press upon any genre of writing. In addition to offering writing consultations for individuals and groups, the Writing Center also offers programming and engages in research dedicated to writing and writing instruction.
THE WRITING CENTER IS ONLINE FOR SPRING 2021
To make an appointment, please visit our online scheduling walkthrough.
As a result of current circumstances, the writing center will operate fully online for the spring semester. We will continue to maximize our resources, offering some one-on-one appointments. Using Zoom, writing consultants will be able to see, hear, and collaborate with students. They will ask thoughtful questions, offer strategies to help create better writers, and inspire students to talk about their writing. Students are encouraged to bring writing from all disciplines and at all stages of the writing process, from outlines to completed drafts, as well as non-academic/personal works.
If you are a graduate student, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
February 8 - One-on-one appointments begin

For ENG110 Students
Students in ENG110 are required to use the writing center for each assignment/unit. This is part of the 100 points awarded in the class [see class grading matrix.] During this time, students and their tutors will take a closer look at a draft of each assignment. [Students may also use the writing center for brainstorming.] Students may visit the writing center before submitting a draft to their instructor or after receiving instructor or peer feedback. If students bring a draft with an instructor’s notes, the tutor can help them navigate and incorporate necessary changes into their next draft. Students may also attend a writing workshop to receive the writing center requirement.
Beginning Friday, Feb. 19, ENG110 students may join a virtual writing walk-in on Fridays (except Friday, April 2) from 10-11 a.m. This will give students the opportunity to ask specific questions about their drafts. This walk-in may have multiple students at once, so students will be best served if they have specific questions beforehand.
Contact email@example.com for virtual "walk-in" Zoom passcode.
For ENG120/201 Students
Students in ENG120 and 201 are not required to use the writing center, but still are encouraged to make appointments and/or attend workshops. Students can visit during each of their class assignments/units for five points, which will be added to their grade. For example, if a draft is missed a student could attend a writing center appointment or workshop to get those points back.
