​Writing Support for the Washington, D.C. Campus


Visit the DC Writing Center in Canvas

The DC Campus offers a range of writing support, including advance review of student papers, writing improvement resources, and working one-on-one with students. The Writing Center also features extensive support for dissertation and thesis writers.

The DC Writing Center is a full Canvas course that offers students self-guided lessons in a special Academic Writing Seminar. All DC Campus students should be enrolled automatically; if  not, please email WritingDC@thechicagoschool.edu. Students can complete a single lesson or entire modules in the course's five sections:

  • The Writing Process: How to make writing easier, faster, and ethical.
  • APA Format: Form, plus citations, references, and special rules.
  • Mechanics: Grammar, punctuation, syntax, and usage
  • Principles of Effective Writing: Organization, clarity, precision, unbiased language.
  • Strong Sentences: The heart of good writing.

You also can get writing help at the DC Writing Center's office in Room 430 of the North Campus, or you can email WritingDC@thechicagoschool.edu or call 202-706-5113 to set up a phone, face-to-face, or video appointment with one of our writing coaches or with DC Writing Specialist Jennifer Veech. Appointments are available seven days a week, including evenings.

For doctoral students, the DC Dissertation Center in Canvas offers manuals, forms, templates and other information for your dissertation or thesis journey -- including how to get specialized help with IRB applications, methodology, research analysis, writing, and copyediting.

Questions? Email WritingDC@thechicagoschool.edu. We look forward to helping you!
