The NIC Writing Center provides University of Idaho Coeur d'Alene students with one-on-one appointments with helpful writing consultants.
The primary goal of the Writing Center is to help students become better writers, not just immediately to compose better papers. Writing Center consultants will help students become better editors of their own work so that they can draft clear, well-written papers, but consultants will not write, revise or edit papers for students.
Consultants can assist students better if students bring a draft of their work to the Writing Center at least a week before the assignment is due.
Walk-in's are welcome, provided a consultant is available.
