Welcome to Writing@CSU. Since the 1990s, Colorado State University has long been an international leader in providing support for writers and teachers of writing. From the WAC Clearinghouse to the development of innovative approaches to writing across the curriculum to the long-running Writing Studio instructional writing environment, CSU faculty, staff, and students have provided resources for tens of millions of visitors to resources for writing and writing instruction.
Resources for members of the CSU community are also robust. CSU Writes, for example, provides support for all writers in the CSU community. Similarly, the Writing Center provides support for students, staff, and faculty members who seek feedback and support on their writing projects. See below for resources available at CSU for writers, writing instructors, and instructors who use writing to support learning and teaching in their courses.
Get Feedback on Your Writing. The Colorado State University Writing Center is dedicated to providing advice and help in every stage of the writing process. Its goal is to engage the community in discussion about writing by providing face-to-face and online consultations, classroom presentations, and outreach to faculty members, staff, and students.
Get Started on a Writing Project. CSU Writes is designed for professional researchers and academic writers who are interested in boosting their productivity as they develop a sustainable writing practice. While select offerings are open to all writers on campus, CSU Writes primarily serves faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students who write for publication, submission, and/or degree completion.
