The Writing Center

Since its start as the Writing Laboratory in 1969, the Writing Center at Madison has helped literally tens of thousands of University of Wisconsin students, both undergraduate and graduate, learn more about writing and has helped them successfully complete course papers, theses, dissertations, and articles for publication — in all sorts of academic disciplines. To provide this help, we offer an extensive range of individual instruction, non-credit classes, curricular-based writing tutors (Undergraduate Writing Fellows), and instructional materials.
Our Mission is to help undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines become more effective, more confident writers. We believe that writing is a powerful tool not only for communicating existing ideas but also for discovering new ones; that learning to write is a life-long process; and that all writers benefit from sharing work in progress with knowledgeable, attentive readers. Our methods—multi-faceted, flexible, and above all, collaborative—reflect our respect for the individual writer, whose talents, voice, and goals are central to all our endeavors.
 
What Makes Us Unique . . . The Writing Center remains the national leader in writing center pedagogy, programs, and research. Each year, the Writing Center's programs work with c. 7000 undergraduate and graduate students.
