The Writing Center

At least ten pages of formal writing on literature, culture, or ideas are required in all sections of Core Literature. Core Literature faculty will guide students in the general planning and execution of this work. However, students who are not fully confident of their basic writing skills are strongly advised to consult the Writing Center, a free individual consulting service on writing maintained by the English Department for Auburn students and graduates. Writing Center consultants are prepared to assist students with all aspects of Core Literature writing assignments. For complete information visit the Writing Center website.


The University provides to all instructors this widely used course management tool, which permits online communication between instructors and students and among students in a class. In managing their courses Core Literature instructors may use features of Blackboard such as the posting of syllabi and/or grades, the transmission of assignments and submission of work, or discussion boards or chatrooms.
