Welcome to the Amy Salyer-Nicholls Writing Center. We provide assistance on any piece of writing at any stage of the writing process: brainstroming, drafting, revising, editing and much more!

You can drop in any time during open hours, but appointments are strongly encouraged to ensure that help will be available to you.

You can reserve an appointment in 30 minute increments, and you should feel free to make multiple reservations to expand your tutorial time as needed. Your consultant will often be able to offer help on short writing assignments within a 30 minute appointment, but if you feel you may need more time or assistance, you can also reserve 60 or 90 minutes of tutorial time. This extended option is also best if you have work like a portfolio or capstone project, tech com or senior design proposal, or research or longer argumentative or analysis essay. Consider the scope of your project and/or the degree of help you anticipate needing, and plan accordingly.

Schedule your appointment today.


The Amy Salyer-Nicholls Writing Center offers students assistance with writing, as well as help in using computers for research or composition of a paper. The Writing Center is located in the LINK in the Rick and Vicki James University Center.
