Writing Center

New Writing Center

The mission of the Augusta University Writing Center is to help students become better writers. By offering free peer consultations to guide students through the writing process, the staff empowers students to make well-informed decisions about their texts.

Our Philosophy

The Augusta University Writing Center supports student writers by providing them with one-on-one writing consultations. Our practice is governed by the following assumptions:

  • Every student has a unique learning style and benefits from individualized writing instruction.
  • Every student can sharpen his or her writing skills with hard work and practice.
  • Good writing and communication skills are necessary for academic success, regardless of discipline.
