About the Writing and Media Center

The Iowa State University Writing and Media Center helps students become stronger, more confident writers and communicators. The WMC offers tailored, one-on-one conferences for students from all disciplines who are working on any form of written, oral, visual, or electronic communication.

a consulting appointment

Trained communication consultants will assist you at any stage of your composing process, from brainstorming and organizing your ideas to
polishing your final draft. We do not proofread or “fix” papers for you,
nor do we create or edit media projects for you, but we will help you
learn how to proofread, evaluate, and improve the effectiveness of
your own work, whether it is a website, oral presentation, essay, or
lab report.

All forms of writing are welcome: WMC consultants are also happy to
work with you on cover letters, resumes, scholarship essays, and
graduate school personal statements.






Walk-in consultations are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
During finals week, the WMC will be open from 10 AM - 3 PM on May 2-5, 2016.
The WMC will close for the semester on Thursday, May 5, 2016.

For summer sessions, the WMC will re-open in 1020 Hixson-Lied on May 16, 2016.
