About the University Writing Center

The University Writing Center is a free resource available to all Appalachian State University students and faculty as well as members of the Boone community. Our consultants are experienced writers and attentive readers who will work with you one-on-one to assist with any aspect of the writing process.

The UWC is a collaborative, supportive, and non-evaluative environment intended to help you with your writing in a way that will foster confidence and competence. Consultants can provide assistance with writing at all stages and in any subject matter. 

Appointment Information

Writing center appointments are scheduled on the whole hour. Appointments last up to 45 minutes. If you are running late, we might not be able to guarantee the full 45 minutes. 

Clients are allowed unlimited appointments in a semester; however, they are only allowed one appointnent per day. 

Missed Appointments

If you are unable to make your appointment, please call (828) 262-3144, text (828) 476-8644, or email writingctr@appstate.edu and let us know.  An appointment is considered a no call/no show at 10 minutes after the hour, and you may not be able to have another session that day. Three missed appointments in a semester may result in a suspension of UWC appointment privileges for the remainder of that semester. 


When the university closes or cancels classes, the writing center will close for in-person services. Virtual services may be available.
