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.

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 “fix” papers for you, nor do we edit
media projects for you, but we will help you learn how to proofread,
evaluate, and improve the effectiveness of your own work.

All forms of communication are welcome! WMC consultants are also happy to
work with you on presentations, job documents, posters, application essays, 
graduate school personal statements, or any other genre.



The Writing and Media Center's Carver location is closed for renovation, with plans to re-open on September 6.
Consultations will be held at our location in the Hixson-Lied Student Success Center for limited hours.
The WMC will be closed for Labor Day (September 4 & 5) and Thanksgiving break (November 20-27).

Walk-in consultations are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
