The Writing Center is here to help you handle some of the stress of the writing process – from brainstorming to the finished document – whether or not it's for a class. The Writing Center is staffed by professional writing consultants and the director.
Available appointment hours may change without notice, so check back often to view options and schedule a one-on-one session. Here is the link for making appointments: https://uncsa.libcal.com/appointments/writingcenter-esl. You must first select the person you want to see, then choose a date and time from the available appointments. When you click 'continue' you'll be asked to provide information about your year in school, your program, and why you are seeking help. You'll also have an opportunity to enter your instructor's name in order for us to notify them that you visited the center, if you want us to do so.
For further information about the Writing Center at UNCSA, contact the Director, Nora Streed.
