Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much does the Writing Center cost? The Writing Center is free for all members of the Creighton community.
  • How far in advance do I need to schedule a day and time? You should try to schedule a session as early as possible. The book tends to fill up very quickly.
  • Can I just drop in with a paper? We always welcome walk-in sessions; however, the book does tend to fill up quickly. As such, if there are no available sessions when you drop in, then we would not be available to collaborate with you.
  • Can I drop a paper off for someone to look at? Unfortunately, no. (Please see our Mission.)
  • What if I can't make my session? If you cannot make your session, please stop back and “white out” your name.
  • There are no available sessions for the time I need. What do I do? We have a Waiting List available for every day there are sessions scheduled. You can sign up with your name and a local phone number, and we will call you if there are any cancellations.
  • Who can I contact about other questions I have? You can contact the director, Rob Dornsife, at (Rob’s faculty home page is here.)
