Everyone can benefit from getting feedback on their writing from a peer. At the WCC, we help students, faculty, and staff with any type of writing or communication project—including research papers, presentations, and resumes—at any stage in the process.
About Our Consultations
We offer 45-minute consultations at any stage in the writing process. These meetings can be in person in our consultation space in Library 118, you can meet with us virtually using our videoconferencing option, or you can submit a draft for written feedback.
About Our Consultants
Most of the consultants at the WCC are students themselves. Undergraduate students from a variety of majors serve as peer consultants. Graduate assistants, a graduate writing specialist, a faculty director, and other staff members also help support writers from the UTC community. All consultants participate regularly in training and professional development exercises, and many of our consultants and staff participate in regional and national writing center conferences. Together, we work to ensure that the WCC is a supportive, inclusive space for all members of the UTC community.
About Our Approach
Our goal is for you to leave your consultation with more confidence in your work and with an actionable plan for revising. With these goals in mind, we work to make consultations as interactive and learning-focused as possible. We also tailor our sessions to fit the needs of the writer. In many sessions, writers read their texts aloud while consultants listen and follow up with questions for clarification and feedback on focus, thesis, organization, etc. Consultants may also assist with grammar, citation, and formatting. Often the focus and scope of our feedback depends upon the stage of the writing process that the writer is in.
