Welcome to USU's Academic Writing Center

Supporting writers at USU: The Academic Writing Center

Located within the James A. Zimble Learning Center, the Academic Writing Center (AWC) serves as a hub for improving writing skills for all members of the USU community – students, faculty, and staff alike. The center offers a diverse range of services, including:

  • Individual consultations: Get personalized feedback and support on your writing projects, from brainstorming and organization to clarity and style.
  • Workshops: Learn new writing techniques and tackle common challenges through interactive "brown-bag" sessions.
  • Faculty support: We collaborate with instructors to provide tailored writing resources and workshops for their classrooms.

Help on demand:

The AWC is committed to providing convenient access to our services. Whether you prefer to connect virtually, asynchronously, or in person, we have options for you:

  • In-person appointments: Meet with our writing specialist, Beth Steinbach, for face-to-face guidance on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays at the LRC.
  • Virtual appointments: Schedule a session with Dr. Steinbach online for personalized feedback, available Monday through Friday.

Investing in your writing success:

The AWC is a free resource available to all USU affiliates. By participating in our programs and services, you can develop strong writing skills that will benefit you throughout your academic and professional journey.
