Welcome to the UVU Writing Center!
In-Person Consultations (25 or 50 minutes) allow writers to meet in-person with a writing consultant to brainstorm ideas, practice writing concepts, receive formative feedback on a draft, and develop plans for writing or revising their work. Most in-person consulting is appointment based, but drop-in appointments are typically available throughout the day. The Writing Center is located on the second floor of the Fulton library, past the circulation desk and on the right.
Online Consultations (25 or 50 minutes) allow writers to meet with a writing consultant on our website to collaborate in real-time. Writers and writing consultants share a screen and writing space, which makes it possible to look at assignments, brainstorm ideas, practice writing concepts, share resources, and discuss the writer's work. At the time of the online appointment, the writer should log in, open the appointment window, and click on the button that reads "Start or Join Online Consultation."
Video Feedback Consultations (60 minutes) allow writers to receive flexible, accessible support when they cannot make use of in-person or synchronous online services. To receive video feedback, writers upload their writing assignment guidelines and an up to five-page draft of their work along with three specific questions or concerns for a writing consultant to address in a short, personalized video. If the name on the work does not match the name on the account that made the appointment, consultants will not be able to give feedback. Writers should expect to receive an email with video feedback within one business day of their scheduled appointment. Priority for this service is given to UVU students.
If you have any issues making an appointment or registering for an account, don't hesitate to reach out to us by calling 801-863-8936 Monday-Saturday, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org any day of the week.
