The heart of any writing center lies in its one-on-one services, and at the UTM Writing Center, we always have several staff and student tutors available to consult with visitors on their writing. We operate on a walk-in basis and can work with you at any stage of the writing process. Bring whatever you have to us: we’ll be glad to sit down with you and discuss it!
Once a month, the writing center hosts a free roundtable where we celebrate writing with the campus at large. Sometimes we host guest speakers; other times, we invite the community to read their favorite works, including their own stories. Check our Facebook page or your university email to see how you can participate in the next roundtable!
Writing is a skill that we continue to master throughout our lives. Even if you don’t have a particular essay to work on, we can always provide you with a meaningful activity that can help you fill the gaps in your writing experience and improve on your strengths. If you are a student in ENGL 100-110, these activities are also a recommended way to fulfill your lab requirements. Talk to your instructor to find out more.
