Welcome to the Writing Center

What we do at the WC

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.

You can now follow us on twitterfacebook, and instagram.
