Our Services

Two women sit in the Park 66 location, smiling and talking in front of an open laptop.The Writing Center offers a variety of services to meet the needs of the UGA community, but 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 organization of an essay's content.

  • Teaching visitors how to self-evaluate and proofread written work independently.

  • Providing professional feedback on a wide-range of writing, from an English 1101 essay to a statement of purpose for medical school to a dissertation draft.

  • Meeting clients wherever they are in the writing process (from brainstorming stages to the final revision) and providing 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, as Writing Center consultants cannot "sub" for instructors or professors.
