Welcome to the Writing Center!

Make an Appointment

We provide free writing tutoring, workshops, and resources to the entire university community: undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff. Serving writers from diverse academic disciplines and cultural settings, our goal is to help you - either in person or online - become a better writer, reader, and critical thinker.

You can expect at the Writing Center:

  • a free, 25- or 50-minute session with a trained and knowledgeable writing tutor
  • a friendly environment offering one-to-one attention
  • discussions about your ideas, writing strategies, strengths, and areas for improvement

WCU writers are saying…

"I got the help I needed and more."

"[Got] me back on track with a really difficult research topic."

"I have ideas about how to edit [my paper] and expand it."

"Genuinely interested and invested in my work."

"The writing center consultants truly care about students personal style of writing."

Fall 2017 Hours

Note: Our hours have changed to meet demand. As demand for late hours was very low last year, we have trimmed our evening hours and instead added staff during our busiest times, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

During any of our hours, you may make an appointment by logging into the scheduling system. Both online and face-to-face appointments are available.

Monday to Thursday: 10:00 am - 8:00 pm

Friday: 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Saturday: closed

Sunday: 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Cancellation Policy

We request that you cancel your appointments at least two hours in advance by logging into the scheduling system. If you miss three appointments at the Writing Center, you will be barred from using Center services until the next semester.

If you have any questions about the Center or your appointment, please contact us directly.
Thank you.
