The Walden Writing Center provides multiple resources for students to work on their writing skills both in real time and progressively. View the “Getting Started Page” to take a tour of the Writing Center’s numerous resources.

   

One-on-one instructional reviews

Writing instructors are available for one-on-one instructional reviews through a scheduling system on your MyWalden Portal. If you’re curious about what a review from the Writing Center looks like, see some feedback samples here. To ensure you receive the most from the feedback, take a look at the Paper Reviews pages before your appointment.

 

Form and Style

In the form and style review (F&S), the editors address the capstone document’s logic, flow, and precision. They review students’ capstone works for the correct use of grammar, punctuation, and other elements integral to APA style, working with students toward the eventual goal of publication of their capstone studies.
