Writing Center Guide

The Writing Center exists as a learning and study space for UAA students and the Anchorage community. We promote the use of academic writing in all disciplines as a tool for learning, communicating, self-expression and critical thinking. Students are the primary focus of our work, both the students who deliver the consultations and those who receive it. We help students become better writers without losing their unique voice.

Writing Center consultations complement course-based learning and help contribute to student success. We work closely with students, faculty and administrators to help students become capable, successful writers. Additionally, the Writing Center serves students for whom English is a second, or even third or fourth, language. We offer help managing the challenges that students face when writing academically in a secondary language.

Writing Center Email Consultations and Live Appointments

Writing Consultants work with students at all levels to help improve their writing skills through one-on-one discussions of their work. Writing consultations can be a useful resource at any point in the writing process, such as brainstorming, expanding ideas, polishing, or even understanding and using APA, MLA, and Chicago Style formats.

Come write with us in-person--no appointment necessary!--in room 115 of the Sally Monserud Hall (see current hours in the sidebar). Email Consultations are completed drop-box style and returned within 72 hours. Live Appointments are held via Zoom and scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.
