The Writing Center offers primarily German-language writing support for students, faculty and staff at the HTWG Konstanz – University of Applied Sciences. The goal is to help clients develop their writing skills, activate personal resources, consolidate knowledge about rules and standards, and improve their stylistic competence and eloquence through regular writing practice. The focus is on academic writing as well as professional and specialized text types, such as technical, laboratory or project reports. There are also a number of workshops to help participants avoid plagiarism and thus ensure that their thesis complies with scientific standards.
