Welcome to the Writing Center

Writing allows us to learn, to collaborate, and to participate in the discourses of humanity. Writing helps us to rethink our assumptions, to challenge injustice, to create shared experiences, and to generate new forms of knowledge and understanding. As a Writing Center, we support writers at every level throughout the many complex stages of the writing process. We encourage writers to participate tenaciously in intelligent, innovative, and rigorous scholarship. We believe that the written word is the medium whereby writers at the University of Wyoming will develop strategies to meet the social, environmental, and economic challenges of today, and we vigorously seek to provide writers with the tools they need to accomplish their goals.

The central goal of the Writing Center is to develop better writers.  We meet this goal primarily by offering half-hour and one-hour consultations to students, faculty, and staff.  Additionally, we advise faculty members on designing effective writing assignments, and we provide and promote workshops, writing groups, and other activities that can help our campus build a stronger culture of writing.

In 2015-16, UW Writing Center provided over 1600 consultations, facilitated more than a dozen workshops, and participated in state and national conversations about effective writing and writing instruction.

Writing Center Spring 2018 Professional Development Series

The Writing Center is pleased to announce our first annual Spring Professional Development Series. The Spring PD Series is intended as a semester-long series of workshops and round-table discussions to help both new and seasoned educators to develop and improve upon their use of writing in the classroom. This spring, we are excited to have support from Kelly Kinney, the English Department Chair, Nancy Small, the Director of Writing Programs, and Rick Fisher, Associate Lecturer and the past Writing Center Director.

The Spring PD Series consists of two pre-semester workshops which cover pedagogical approaches to incorporating writing into the classroom followed by monthly round-table discussions that focus on practical advice for using writing as an effective teaching and learning tool on a day-to-day basis.
