Helping the NDSU community become capable and confident writers!


The Center for Writers (CFW) provides no-cost writing support to NDSU undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff.  We are excited to help our NDSU writers!  You can learn more by watching a short video here

Schedule an appointment with a consultant, join a workshop, become part of a Writing Community, or just stop by to get some writing done. Track upcoming events on MyNDSU. We look forward to working with you at the Center!

Our writing consultants have experience working with a wide variety of documents at all levels. Our goal is to help our clients become independent writers; consequently, in our one-on-one sessions, we take time to thoroughly discuss issues that arise in drafts. We want to ensure the writer understands how to make appropriate writing decisions.

Mind the Gap helps graduate students stay on track in their final semester. The Center for Writers sets up individualized accountability plans, support, and encouragement to finish strong.


Donations to our fund at the NDSU Foundation are always welcome and are used to directly serve the success of students.
