The Writing Center is here to help you handle some of the stress of the writing process – from brainstorming to the finished document – whether or not it's for a class. The Writing Center is staffed by professional writing consultants and the co-directors. The Center is located in the Teaching and Learning Center, Room 2308. It’s right above the Library Café. Join the Writing Center Facebook Group.
The Writing Center is open for fall semester with hours available Sunday evenings through Fridays. You may make appointments to work online with Nora Streed and either online or in person in the Writing Center with Hadis Ghaedi. Follow current Community Health Standards for in-person meetings.
The Writing Center is for all
The Writing Center is available to all UNCSA students, staff, and faculty to help with any writing questions at all, whether or not it is for a class assignment – including grant proposals, screenplays, fellowship/internship/college applications, novels, poetry, your thesis – and we can help you get started or get unstuck in the middle or your work, as well as help you learn to proofread your work effectively.
Writing is stressful for many people, and we’re here to help you tell your story with skill and confidence. More information, including current hours, writing resources, and easy instructions for making appointments, is available on our LibGuide page: https://library.uncsa.edu/writingcenter-esl
