Our premier service is the face-to-face conference with a trained tutor who will read your work with a fresh pair of eyes.
Writers often get so close to their work that it becomes difficult to see where to go next. Writing Center consultants will read your work and give you a sounding board for developing ideas, rethinking organization, creating focus, expanding research techniques, and more.
Writing is meant to be read, so it is helpful to make use of an outside reader as we develop our projects. Writing becomes stronger as we make use of sound feedback in the revision process.
Feel free to make use of the Writing Center throughout the writing process:
- talk through ideas before you get started;
- receive feedback as you begin a first draft;
- bring back as many drafts as you like;
- consult with a trained reader about sentence-level issues such as grammar and editing.
The Writing Center is a free service for all UCA students, and we would love to work with you throughout the development of all your writing projects! You are welcome to come as often as you would like. You can make an appointment, or drop in, but appointments are given priority.
