Writing Specialist Services
Dr. Betsy Craig, Writing
Specialist at Furman, is here to help students with academic writing challenges.
She is available to assist at any stage of the writing process: brainstorming,
organizing, drafting, editing, and revising. Furman faculty are encouraged to
refer students individually to this office when they feel a student would
benefit from more focused attention to accuracy issues in their writing, such
as with grammar, punctuation, and mechanics.
Dr. Craig can also provide
guidance on achieving greater unity, organization, development, cohesion, authority,
and/or audience awareness. This office is also where students will come for
plagiarism tutorials when in violation of Furman's academic integrity policies.
