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.


New Scheduling System!

The Writing Center has switched to a new scheduling application! With this new site, you can schedule face-to-face or online consultations between 9:00am and 7:00pm Monday-Friday. When you click on the "schedule consultation" button, you will be taken to a log-in screen. On that screen, simply register for a new account using your email, and you will be able to schedule a writing consultation with the consultant of your choice! This new application has built-in web-conferencing support, so you will no longer need to use Zoom or fill out the "online consultation request form" for online writing support! Thank you for your patience as we switch over to this new system. If you have any questions, please email us at or call us at 307-766-5250.

To visit the new scheduling system, go to
