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 “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.






Walk-in consultations are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
For summer sessions, the WMC is open in 1020 Hixson-Lied.
The WMC will be closed for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July.
