Specialized Writing Help

Bronco Finish Line is Boise State Graduate College’s writing assistance program designed specifically for graduate students. Whether you would like to brainstorm an idea for a project, or you have a final draft that needs polishing, our writing coaches can help with any step of the writing process.

Our goal at Bronco Finish Line it to improve both the writing and the writer. Therefore, we ask questions that help the writer expand or clarify an idea and identify patterns of style errors, teaching the writer how to recognize and correct their work on current and future projects.

With guidance from our coaches, student writing sessions will enable the writer to move from draft to finished product with confidence.
