To Students: 

The Writer’s Resource Lab (WRL) is our campus’s only writing center for all CSULB students. We are here to help you become a more effective and independent writer. You can come to us for assistance with any writing related to your life at CSULB, including writing assignments for any class, scholarship essays, personal statements, and resumes. We can work with you at any stage of the writing process, from generating ideas to revising to editing. We can also help you with research, with integrating sources into your writing, and with MLA or APA documentation. As part of our mission to help you become a better writer, we won’t tell you what to write or predict what grade your assignment will earn, and we won’t edit for you–but we will help you learn to revise and edit your work.

We know that all writers benefit from talking about their writing with others. Please call us or drop by to see how we can be of help to you.

Our Mission:

The WRL’s central mission is to provide ongoing writing instruction to any currently enrolled CSULB student through one-on-one tutorials. As an integral part of the writing-across-the-curriculum program on this campus, the WRL exists to help students become more effective and independent writers. The WRL’s philosophy is that the act of writing effectively is a process (i.e., a continuous act of thinking, drafting, revising, rewriting, and editing). Using this concept as a foundation, the WRL tutors help student writers improve their skills by teaching them strategies to aid them in each stage of the writing process. Some of the broad range of tasks a tutor might help a student with include selecting a topic, generating ideas, developing and revising drafts, working out issues of style, or improving proofreading and editing skills.
