University of Southern Indiana
Writers' Room

The Writers' Room serves as a resource for undergraduate writers by providing assistance from peer writing consultants, a comfortable writing environment, and reference materials.

For writing assignments in any class and at any stage of the writing process, peer writing consultants can provide students with guidance and feedback:

  • Understanding assignments
  • Audience
  • Brainstorming
  • Citing
  • Drafting
  • Editing
  • Elaborating and supporting ideas
  • Focusing
  • Understanding grammar
  • Organizing
  • Researching and using source material
  • Revising
  • Using correct and effective sentence structure
  • Thesis development

All writing consultants complete an extensive training program led by the Academic Skills staff and are supervised by Writing Specialist Deanna Odney.

Online Writing Lab
Students can send an essay to owl@usi.edu for feedback from a writing consultant.
The email message should include:

  • A note describing the assignment
  • The help needed
  • The class and professor
  • The due date of the assignment

A writing consultant will respond initially within 48 hours, except on Fridays and weekends. If all of the information above is not included, it could delay review of the paper.

If you have any questions, please contact our Writing Specialist, Deanna Odney.
