Do you want to schedule a writing consultation or ask a quick question?
Click on the options below to learn more:

These consultations are 45-minutes long and are ideal for receiving immediate feedback, addressing specific writing concerns, discussing writing strategies, reviewing partial drafts, and brainstorming.

In-Person Writing Consultations are held at the Writing Center and Virtual Consultations are held via Google Meet. Both can be scheduled at least 2 hours in advance.

Submit your paper and have a consultant give you feedback via Google Docs in a 24-72 hour time frame

The OWL is ideal if you cannot meet with a consultant during our working hours, if you have a complete draft of your paper, if you do not have complex questions or concerns, or if you have time to wait for feedback.

Do you have a quick question that can be answered in 10 minutes or less?

Send an email or Google Chat message to writingcenter@unlv.edu or call 702-895-3908 with a quick question. During working hours, a consultant can respond to you typically within 20 minutes.

Mission Statement

At the UNLV Writing Center, our writer-centered approach fosters an understanding of writing as a series of choices writers make based on context, audience, purpose, and genre. We work with writers in any discipline on any writing task (except for legal documents) to help them develop, improve, and transfer writing skills into their personal, academic, professional, and civic lives.

The Writing Center is primarily a site for teaching and learning. We do not edit or proofread for writers. Instead, we consult with writers at any level of expertise to help them develop their own strategies for making informed choices about writing. Because writing is one of the chief ways we create, communicate, and critique knowledge, the Writing Center plays a central role in the life of the university.
