The Writing Center

All Writing Center services are available online during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The UToledo Writing Center supports student writers in all disciplines. During a session, our Writing Consultants engage in conversation with writers, focusing on ideas, organization, development, argument, synthesis and writers’ concerns. We encourage students to come early in the writing process so we can provide help before a writer becomes lost, stuck or overwhelmed.

Appointments

  • 50-Minute Session — great for longer papers and assignments that require more feedback, such as group projects, research papers, or senior theses. Note that at the end of the appointment, the Writing Consultant will review and write a brief report before their next session. Longer and more complex assignments take more time to read and review so the writer should come to the Center at least a week in advance to the assignment being due.
  • 25-Minute Session — works well for shorter writing assignments, brainstorming sessions, and/or assistance with research documentation and formatting, including MLA and/or APA citation styles. Note that at the end of the appointment, the Writing Consultant will review and write a brief report before their next session.
