Summer Session 2 Hours:

The University Writing Center (UWC) offers free services to students, faculty, and staff of Appalachian State University and the Boone community. Anyone who would like to discuss a piece of writing with an informed, sensitive reader is welcome. We are here to work with writers on a wide variety of projects: papers for academic courses; masters and senior thesis chapters; personal essays for job, graduate school, and law school applications; creative writing projects; grant or project proposals; and course syllabi. We work with writers at any stage of the writing process, from inventing topics to editing at the sentence-level. Please note, if you are working on a group assignment, all group members must be present.
Please be aware that emails sent after we close for the week may not be responded to until the following Monday.
As a policy, when the university closes/cancels classes due to inclement weather, the UWC closes.
