Syllabus Blurb

Here is a blurb about the Writing and Speaking Center for professors to include in syllabi, assignments, and websites:

Blurb for Syllabus:

"The Writing and Speaking Center, located in the Library Annex, offers free consultations in writing and speaking for students at all levels and in all disciplines. No matter what you're writing and no matter where you are in the process (generating ideas, drafting, revising or proofreading), the peer tutors in the Center can assist you. These tutors are friendly students and also excellent writers with special training as writing  and speaking consultants. They would not grade or correct your papers; instead, they'd coach you and help you become a better writer.  Similarly, the tutors are also trained to help you plan and practice presentations and other speaking assignments. I encourage you to use the Writing and Speaking Center as much as possible. You can make a one-time or repeating appointment with the Center by visiting their website, www.smcm.edu/writingcenter, and clicking 'Schedule an Appointment.' At the same website, you can find helpful resources on many writing-related topics."
