The UWC offers a variety of services for our writers. Not only do we have face-to-face and online help for individual writers, we also assist with groups.

Face-to-Face Help

The University Writing Center (UWC) is open and available to students, faculty, and staff to work with undergraduate and graduate writing consultants on writing at any stage of the writing process. Our consultants are specifically trained to address the needs of the writers across the disciplines at East Carolina University.

On-Line Writing Lab

The ECU Online Writing Lab (OWL) Offers Distance Education students the opportunity to consult with a trained writing center consultant, either in an e-Tutoring appointment, or a Meet Online appointment. Our OWL allows off-campus students to ask specific questions about their writing in any stage, from brainstorming to the final draft. While our online consultants do not simply proofread or edit anyone's paper, we gladly answer questions and try to provide feedback that will help any student become a better writer.

Group Help

We're glad to help writers working on group projects. Writing collaboratively has certain benefits, but also brings other challenges (and usually more steps) to the writing process. As a result, sessions about a group writing project can look a little different than a typical tutoring session, and they come with slightly different expectations.
