Writing Center

Writing Center

The Writing Center provides opportunities for undergraduate students to improve writing and thinking skills in their academic work, and also in preparation for their respective careers. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, trained consultants with a variety of majors assist writers individually at all stages of the composing process. For the university community, the Center also makes available printed and online materials, as well as workshops, on topics related to writing and teaching writing. The Center is also committed to involvement in professional activities, including conducting research, that improve its service to students and contribute to writing center theory and practice.

Currently, the Writing Center is funded to work with UMD undergraduate students only. UMD graduate students can request writing consultations here.  We also offer synchronous online tutoring.

After August 2104, the Writing Center will no longer tutor students from University of Maryland University College (UMUC). UMUC maintains an online writing center to assist students in classes they take at their institution.
