The Writer’s Resource Lab (WRL) is CSULB’s writing center. Its central mission is to provide ongoing writing instruction to any currently enrolled CSULB student via 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 that take them through 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/revising drafts, working out issues of style, or improving proofreading and editing skills. WRL tutors can also help students with basic research and with MLA or APA citation systems.
WRL staff do not dictate content, edit, proofread, or co-author students’ papers, nor do they predict what sort of grade an assignment might earn.
