Writing Center

Welcome to the Writing Center!  Our Center--located in Swenson 1030-- provides free assistance to any and all UW-Superior students with the writing they do for their classes, no matter the discipline.  (It is part of the UW-Superior Writing across the Curriculum Program.)  Students can find help with all stages of the writing process from our peer consultants.  Both face-to-face and online consultations are available.

Spring 2014 Hours (beginning Wednesday, January 22):

6:30 pm - 11:00 pm Sundays (online only, beginning Feb. 9)

9:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday (in-person and online)

9:00 am - 9:00 pm Wednesday (in-person and online)

9:00 am - 4:00 pm Friday (in-person and online)

NOTE: We will be closed during Spring Break (March 16-23).

 A Few Rules to Follow in Making and Keeping Appointments:

1. Length of appointments: Thirty-minute appointments are recommended for most consultations, except for consultations for second-language learners or for students with papers exceeding five pages. Make sixty-minute appointments in those cases ONLY.
2. If you are late for an appointment and we have someone arrive at the center at that time who wants a walk-in consultation, we will consider you a no-show and accommodate the walk-in client.
3. A consultation (whether in-person or online) should concern just one writing assignment.
4. PLEASE NOTE OUR NO-SHOW RULE: After three no-shows in a term, a client will not be able to make any additional appointments for the rest of the term. (To cancel an appointment and therefore not be counted as a no-show, enter WCOnline, click on the appointment you cannot keep, and indicate that you are cancelling it.) The client can continue to be seen on a walk-in basis only. (In the case of online consultations, the client will not be able to be seen at all since there are no walk-in consultations available online.)  The Writing Center has this rule because when a client does not show up for an appointment, oftentimes, that time slot could have been used by another client. In other words, your not showing up for your scheduled consultation may prevent another student from getting the writing center services that he or she needs.
