Augusta Writing Center

In-person writing tutoring is suspended due to COVID-19. Distance consultations continue to be available at

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

Who we are:

  • Undergraduate students majoring in Art, Business, Education, English, and Interdisciplinary Studies.

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!
