The writing desk at Lewis and Clark is here to assist students with all types of writing issues. We can help with higher-order concerns such as thesis development, organization, support, and word choice, but we can also assist with other problems such as grammar and MLA issues. Our goal has always been to help you become the best writer you can be by guiding you in the right direction.
