About Us

The Colorado State University Writing Center is a free service open to Colorado State University students, staff, faculty, and alumni as well as the local Fort Collins community. Our goal is to engage our community in conversations about writing; to that end, we provide face-to-face and online consultations for writers in all disciplines working on all types of writing from traditional research papers to electronic texts such as websites and blogs.

Beginning with writers’ needs and concerns, we use our knowledge and expertise to enhance writers’ understanding of a variety of rhetorical issues, such as purpose, audience, style and conventions. Our consultants can assist writers at all stages of the writing process, including brainstorming, drafting, researching, revising, and polishing. We strive to help writers develop the confidence to make effective writing choices in any writing situation. In these ways, we support the shared goal of writing centers everywhere to help create better writers, not just better writing.
