Virtual Writing Center
The Virtual Writing Center (VWC) is the online wing of the University Writing Center. Online services may be ideal for writers who cannot come in person to the physical Writing Center. The VWC offers online chat consultations and email consultations.
E-mail consultations allow you to submit a paper for review by a writing consultant. In a 50 minute session, the consultant will read your paper and provide feedback, based on your desires, to help you revise. You can usually expect a response within two business days.
Chat consultations allow you to submit your paper, and, at a scheduled time, you and a writing consultant can each view your paper simultaneously and discuss revisions in a 50 minute chat (audio and text-based) session.
Please note that during periods of high usage, it may take us more than two business days to respond to your submission. Also, on-campus students are encouraged to make use of the physical writing center if at all possible, especially during periods of higher utilization. The VWC prioritizes distance learners.
Chat and e-mail sessions are limited by the technology available but offer a practical option for students who cannot come to the Writing Center for a face-to-face consultation during the Center’s hours of operation. The VWC does not schedule sessions on Saturday.
If you have any questions about these services, please email us at email@example.com.
