Writing Center

The UWRF Writing Center is open and ready for FREE in-person or synchronous tutoring sessions. Students schedule an appointment with a tutor and can request to meet online through Microsoft Teams or in person in the campus Writing Center located on the second floor of the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building in room 225. Walk-ins are also welcome during Writing Center hours for immediate tutor needs.

2023 Spring Semester Hours
The Writing Center is closed this semester due to staffing issues, BUT students may use the Online Writing Center (OWL).

Who can benefit by using the Writing Center?
Undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in classes from all subject areas may visit the OWL and/or the WC for assistance during all stages of composing (inventing, revising, editing).

Who we are: 
The Writing Center staff consists of specially trained undergraduate students from a variety of majors - tutors who help students learn to write more effectively on their own. The WC/OWL are not proofreading, rewriting, or correcting services, or a guarantee of better grades.

Suggestions for receiving the best help from the Writing Center:

  1. Consider submitting a rough draft. We will read it, ask questions, and help you focus your ideas and expand your development.
  2. Give yourself plenty of time to submit your work in order to receive feedback before your assignment is due.
  3. Read your feedback carefully, thinking about the suggestions the tutor gave you. Revise your work.
  4. Visit the University Writing Center on a regular basis, so that you will continue to grow as a writer.
  5. If meeting online, save your document as a .doc or .rtf file so that your tutor can easily access it and provide timely feedback.
