About the UWC

At the University Writing Center (UWC), we offer free personal consulting in all areas of writing and composing at any stage of the writing process. Whether you want a reader for a final draft, to brainstorm ideas, or to discuss an entire assignment, the UWC can help.

Because everyone writes differently, we tailor our support to meet each writer's needs. We believe that writing benefits from feedback and response, so the UWC is a place for dialogue and conversation. We take the time to talk about your writing so that you can become a better writer, reviewer, and editor of your own work.

We are qualified readers of print-based, digital, and new media compositions. Some of the print-based documents we review include academic essays, research papers, lab reports, literature reviews, job applications, proposals, personal statements, resumes, and CVs. We also consult over digital, visual, and multimodal compositions, including audio and video essays, brochures, flyers, websites, digital stories, research posters, and other new media projects. We also help with issues particular to ESL writers.

We offer three types of consultations at the UWC. Click on any of the following hyperlinks for more information:

Please visit these webpages to determine what will work best for you. For concerns or questions, please email us at uwc@baylor.edu. If you have problems logging in to your online consultation or have other questions about your consultation, please email your consultant directly. Their email addresses are provided here.

Any student, faculty, or staff member is welcome to schedule an appointment using our online scheduler. Drop-ins are also welcome, but we can't guarantee avaialability so it's best to make an appointment.
