Following are the guidelines for submission:
A few tips:
As with all Writing Center services, workshops are free to UW-L students. We do ask that you register.
This workshop helps students think about writing in formats and patterns that build on the rigid formulas they may have learned in previous writing classes. Principles of organization, development, and thesis placement will be explored, and individual tutors will be on hand to help you with specific writing projects. Register here. Be sure to bring your laptop and any current writing projects!
This workshop is co-sponsored by the UW-L It Makes Cents Money Management Center and is designed to help students find and apply for scholarships. Register here.
A hunker is a focused writing time, a chance to set aside some time to get a chunk of work done with no distractions. We provide the space and tutors to help out when and how you want it. Register here. Be sure to bring your laptop!
As the School of Education transitions to this new high-stakes portfolio system, the Writing Center will offer some study in the genre and writing techniques expected in the edTPA. Although this workshop is especially targeted to Field I and Field 2 students, all Education students are welcome to attend. Register here. Be sure to bring your laptops!

Writing Center tutors are here to assist you with all of your writing needs. Simply stop by Murphy Library Learning Center sign up for a tutoring session. You may also come in on a drop-in basis if tutors are available. Use our computers, our reference books, our couch, our staplers, our tables--but most of all use our friendly and knowledgeable tutoring staff.
To get the most from your tutoring session, please bring a copy of the assignment as well as any notes or drafts. Feel free to bring in electronic versions of your work as well. Although tutors can help at the last minute, the sooner you can come in the better. Peer tutors encourage writers to be as independent as possible. We will not edit or proofread papers; instead, we ask questions designed to help writers find and analyze their own problems.
The Writing Center tutors are UWL undergraduates from many different majors: Psychology, Chemistry, Biology, English, Accounting, History, ESS. Meet the current team of tutors (link under construction).
On any given day, you are as likely to see a biology major as an English major, a freshman as a senior--or even a graduate student--using the Writing Center. Some people are working on their resumes, others are brushing up on APA documentation, and still others are discussing paper topics or overcoming writer's block. The people who visit the Writing Center are a diverse group, but they all share a commitment to improve their writing.
Peer tutors offer writers help in preparing
at any stage in the composing process:
Every paper can be better.
Better writers, not just better papers
Every writer has strengths.
Writers are in charge of their writings.
The writer does the writing.
For tutoring to be teaching, the writer must talk so the tutor can listen
