The Writing Center

Develop your writing expertise with the help of trained Writing Consultants and review resources on common writing issues.

Welcome to the NCWU Writing Center!

The NCWU Writing Center is dedicated to helping students with any form of writing, from any class, and at any stage of the writing process. We offer both face-to-face and synchronous online sessions that allow you to collaborate with trained peer consultants, and we host Writing Workshops each semester that walk you through important writing topics.

Location: PEL 146

The Writing Center is OPEN during the fall and spring semesters only. It is CLOSED during the summer.

For Students:

Individual Consultations

Students in any class and at any stage in their writing process can schedule an Individual Consultation with our trained peer consultants. Consultations may be face-to-face or online. Be sure to provide a copy of the assignment sheet.

Scheduled appointments will be given priority over walk-ins.
