The Writing Center offers a variety of services to meet the needs of the UGA community. Our consultants are practiced at providing feedback and support on a wide range of writing, from an English 1101 essay, to a statement of purpose for medical school, to a dissertation draft.
Please note: we will not proofread or edit papers for our visitors. If you would like a list of editors-for-hire, please email us at WritingCenter@uga.edu.
Writing Center consultants focus on providing the following services:
Helping visitors evaluate aspects of their writing, including thesis development and content organization.
Teaching visitors how to self-evaluate and proofread written work independently.
Meeting clients wherever they are in the writing process (from brainstorming stages to the final revision) and providing professional feedback on how to improve the current draft and/or the visitor's writing in general.
Visiting classes or special events to familiarize students with Writing Center services or to present a lesson on a specific aspect of writing. Instructors or organizations wishing to request a visit from the Writing Center should email us at WritingCenter@uga.edu. Please note, if we are visiting a class, the course's instructor must be present at the time of the presentation. Writing Center consultants cannot "sub" for instructors or professors.
