Augusta Writing Center

The UMA Writing Center supports writers and fosters a culture of writing at UMA, both in person and online.

What we do:

  • Converse with you about your writing ideas, projects, goals, and challenges.
  • Provide guidance throughout your writing process, whether you’re just beginning to plan or you’re putting in the final touches.
  • Teach you proofreading and editing strategies, paying special attention to patterns of non-standard usage.
  • Ask sincere critical thinking questions to help you clarify content and rhetorical choices.
  • Collaboratively map out plans for writing project completion.

What We Don’t Do:

  • Grade your papers, or predict your grade. We do, of course, help you think about how you might best meet assignment guidelines.
  • Copy edit papers line by line. Instead, we love to work with you on proofreading strategies and provide guidance as you copy edit your own draft.

What We Love Most:

  • Helping writers. We look forward to working with you soon!
