The Writing Center is a place where all University of Lynchburg students, faculty, and staff can come to improve their writing skills through a broad range of tutorial services. Established in 1981, the Center was renamed the Alton L. Wilmer Writing Center in 1997, in honor of the retired Pepsi-Cola executive whose career with the company spanned 34 years from 1959 to 1993.
Tutors assist with remedial to advanced levels of writing in all fields. The Center is equipped with six computers with a range of software applications, and reference books and writing texts are also available.
Where is it located?
The Writing Center is located on the ground floor of Hopwood Hall in room 4 (the center room).
Make an Appointment
Wilmer Writing Center will be virtually operating during Summer 2020. To request an appointment, please email email@example.com. We will then ask for your paper, the assignment’s directions, and answers to our intake form. Wilmer Writing Center will operate on limited hours with a limited staff, Mondays through Thursdays. Writing tutors will offer both synchronous (using Google Docs and Google Meet or phone) and asynchronous (using email for feedback) appointments. We request that you give us 24 to 48 hours (Monday through Thursday) to process your requests. Tutors can usually review 10 pages per appointment. Please keep in mind that Wilmer Writing Center does not edit papers. We look forward to working with you!
Who will help me?
Tutors are current students who are carefully chosen for their ability to write and communicate with others.
They are trained to assist at all stages of the writing process (planning, organizing, revising, and final editing), and their goal is to teach you to take charge of your writing and produce clear and effective prose.
