Freeman Business Writing Center

The Freeman Business Writing Center (FBWC) helps Freeman students sharpen their writing skills as they prepare written communications for their business courses. In one-on-one or small group appointments, Writing Instructors work with students across the curriculum to help them strengthen their business writing skills. The Writing Center is not an editing service for students; rather, students learn to self-edit their own memos, cases analyses, reports, and other business documents. The focus is on grammar, organization, and clarity as students learn how to identify and correct weak areas in their writing.

What can the Writing Center do for me?  When you come in, you decide with the Writing Instructor what aspect of your writing you want to focus on. Topics you might discuss include the following:

  • Audience and purpose
  • Macro and micro organization
  • Logical organization
  • Professional tone
  • Appropriate document design and layout
  • Solid sentence syntax
  • Standard grammar and mechanics for business style

*Please note: The Writing Center is not a proofreading service. We can help you learn to proofread and revise your own essay, but we will not simply edit your paper for you.
