Individual consultations. The center’s primary mission is to provide a place for writers to talk with writers about their writing projects. Consultations with a trained writing consultant last 25 or 50 minutes. During that time, the consultant will answer questions, provide feedback, and coach you through any stage of your writing process from brainstorming to final editing. A writing consultant can assist you in any of the following areas:

Consultations for graduate students. Since graduate-level essays are often lengthy, you may reserve an hour-long appointment instead of the standard half hour. You may wish to work with our Graduate Consultant, Kathy Radosta. Kathy works Wednesday and Thursday mornings; to schedule an appointment, call the Writing Center at 554-2946.
South Campus location. As of Fall 2011, we have an alternate location for students who live or take classes on South Campus. Consultants are available for appointments in Mammel Hall Rm 131. To view available appointments, click the "Make an Appointment" link above and select MH 131 from the dropdown menu.
Library satellite. A Writing Center consultant is available for limited hours at the UNO Library. Because we do not schedule appointments for the satellite location, we ask that you use this service for quick questions and limit your session to 15-20 minutes if other students are waiting.
Workshops. Center consultants offer a variety of workshops on topics of interest to the university’s writing community. Presented at our central location in ASH 150 or in the classroom, presentation topics range from pre-writing strategies to documentation styles.
