Resume and Professional Writing Support

Community Outreach

  • The Marian University Writing Center is open to the public and services are available to everyone. We are proud of our commitment to community engagement and public scholarship. We believe literacy, writing and education—formal or informal—play a vital role in working towards social justice and personal agency and writing centers have a central role within this effort. To this end, the Writing Center manages a number of off-campus writing support centers and works with a range of partners throughout Indianapolis to provide writing support.

Public Tutorials

  • Services are available to the public regardless of whether they are affiliated with Marian University. Community members can visit the Center by making an appointment, walking in, or emailing us a draft of their essay. The service is available for youth and adults of all ages for all types of writing. We routinely work with public, private, and home-schooled high school students, adults seeking professional advice, incarcerated and recently paroled individuals, and those who need other advice about writing.
