The Writer’s Resource Lab

Our Mission

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 individualized tutorials. As an integral part of across-the-curriculum writing instruction 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 working drafts, dealing with issues of style, and acquiring proofreading and editing skills.

Welcome to the WRL.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.

The WRL is closed during May intersession, all summer, and winter session but reopens the first day of the fall and spring semesters. There is no tutoring offered during the week of Thanksgiving observance (Monday through Friday), finals week of both terms, and spring break.
