Writing Center

Where to find us.

Come check us out in our brand new space. We are now located on the 4th floor of the Academic Learning Commons, the new building next to Cabell Library, at 1000 Floyd Avenue.

Readers for all writers.

Why? Because your professor shouldn’t be the first person to read your paper. At the Writing Center, our consultants offer you an additional set of eyes, an additional perspective on your work, before anyone stamps a grade on it. We are here to be your readers and listeners, regardless of what discipline you’re in or what project you’re working on.

We’re trained to help you sort out what you want to say, and how you want to say it, so that it makes sense to your readers and clearly expresses your ideas. Stop by for a one-on-one consultation to see what a conversation with one of us can do for you.

Choose Your Consultation Style!

Face-to-face, please.

Sure. You can schedule a face-to-face, on-site appointment, call 804-828-4851 or stop by our reception desk. We do take walk-ins as we can, but appointments are preferred.

Online, please.

Absolutely. We do ask a day’s advanced notice for online appointments.We hope to offer more appointments soon. Information for scheduling an online session is available here:  Scheduling Online Consultations. You can also read more about our online service and how it works.
