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. Additionally, any online appointments scheduled after we close on Friday may not be confirmed until Monday morning at 9am.

As a policy, when the university cancels classes, the UWC closes.
