The UCM Writing Center is here to help! Our staff is entirely composed of current UCM students, all with the same goal - to help fellow students at any part of the writing process. While we are excited to help, you won't just sit and listen. You'll talk about your ideas, ask questions, and probably do some writing too. Whether you need help getting started, getting focused, or getting finished, we are here for you. Find us inside the Learning Commons.
Online Writing Lab (OWL)
Submit your writing online from anywhere using Google Docs. Receive specific, personalized feedback from a writing tutor within two business days.
The Writing Center, located in the Learning Commons (JCKL 1250), is a comfortable and supportive space for you to explore ideas, talk about your writing, make progress toward your goals, and improve your writing skills.
Our writing tutors are all UCM students, and they are happy to help you:
While we are eager to help you while you’re here, there are steps you can take to come to the Writing Center prepared to hit the ground running. Here are some steps to take to increase the usefulness you'll get out of your visit with the Writing Center:
“The Writing Center is awesome: when I get here I am greeted with great smiles and asked what they could help me [with] today. I have problems with my writing, and the staff will ask how I would like to rewrite the sentence and explain how I could make it better. If there were no Writing Center, I think I would have been miserable because I have questions and when I visit, I can get help and have less stress.”
