What we do

The University Writing Center offers individual and small group support for University of Delaware students working on any writing or communication projects. Writing tutors and oral communication consultants offer feedback and help you make progress on your writing at any stage in the writing process: getting started, developing a research and writing plan, clarifying ideas, organizing paragraphs or sections, revising for sentence style and clarity. 

Students may meet with a writing tutor or oral communication consultant in person or online and may have one appointment per day. Writing appointments last around 45-50 minutes and oral communication appointments last around 20-25 minutes. 

The Writing Center also offers workshops, writing groups, faculty development, and special events. All our services are free to UD students, staff, and faculty. 

We strive to make the Writing Center an inclusive space for all students and celebrate diversity among our clients and staff. This includes welcoming both student writers and peer tutors from all cultural, ethnic, racial, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, ability, religion, health and parenthood status groups.
