Writing Center Services 


 
The UNF Writing Center offers a variety of appointment types and lengths for our students, faculty, and staff. While we offer walk-in sessions on a first-come, first-served basis, we strongly suggest that individuals plan ahead to schedule meeting times that work well for their schedules and allow them to reflect and revise after your meetings and to schedule a subsequent meeting.
 
 
Below is a brief list of the content-specific services we offer; if you don't see something you need, please choose one of the "Others" and let us know about your content area when you visit so we can work towards growing the number and kinds of supports we can offer.

We also offer a guide here for choosing the right kind of meeting for your visit. As you can imagine, a last-minute 20-minute walk-in session doesn't afford you or us much time to work through a substantial piece of writing or complex set of questions in the same way an hour-long meeting or repeating set of meetings can.

Walk-ins

The UNF Writing Center is able to offer 20 hours per week to meet with students for walk-in sessions on a first-come, first-served basis. These sessions are not intended to be substantial or extensive and should only be used to discuss quick questions, review very specific or very short writing artifacts, and schedule a subsequent visit.
