The Writing Center and Your Writing

The University Writing Center is interested in supporting the writing and scholarship of UofL faculty. We work with faculty through the one-on-one writing consultations to address any writing projects in which they are involved, including conference proposals and presentations, articles, book proposals, and grant proposals. We can work with interested faculty at any point in their writing process, from organization and brainstorming, to revising and polishing drafts. Our sessions last 50 minutes and faculty can sign up for up to three appointments a week, and can make appointments with the same consultant.

We will be providing more information and resources for faculty writers in the months to come. Meanwhile, you can also find information about common writing and citation questions on our website.

Faculty Writing Groups

The University Writing Center organizes and facilitates writing groups for faculty at UofL. The goal is to provide support, community, accountability, and feedback for faculty working on research writing. All writers can benefit from finding getting support and feedback for their writing projects. Our writing groups provide a regular setting in which faculty have time for writing and a setting in which to discuss writing-related issues. Any writing project can be brought to the group – journal articles, grant proposals, conference presentations, etc. Each meeting will be facilitated by a member of the University Writing Center staff who will coordinate workshop time, or respond to individual questions.


  • For Fall 2016 the groups will meet on selected Tuesdays from 5-7 p.m. at the University Writing Center on the first floor of Ekstrom Library. The meetings are scheduled  for the following dates:

September 13

October 18

November 15

December meeting TBA

  • Although it is not required to sign up for a writing group meeting beforehand, it does help us plan if you can let us know that you are plan on attending on a given week.

If you are interested in participating, or would like to get more information, please contact Jessie Newman, Assistant Director for Graduate Student Writing, University Writing Center at or or 852-2173.
