UWM Writing Center – Open for Spring 2021    

For more info and to make appointments via our online scheduler, visit our website:  www.writingcenter.uwm.edu .  Writers may still virtually ‘walk in” although we recommend reservations.

Our friendly and experienced tutors talk or text with writers in real time, one-on-one, and confidentially, about whatever they are writing, wherever they are in their process including the brainstorming or reading stage.  In addition to academic projects, tutors can assist with personal documents, too,  e.g., resumes, c.v.’s, cover letters, and applications of all sorts–free of charge.
