At the Writing Center, trained Writing Consultants offer individual writing assistance for all Heidelberg University classes, at all stages of the writing process. Our goal is to aid students in developing the skills to think and work independently on future writing projects.

Make appointments on the Writing Center schedule at heidelberg.mywconline.com
Drop-ins are welcome, but students with appointments are given priority! Please note that at certain times of the semester, the Writing Center is busy and students who bring in papers the day before they are due may find that the Consultants cannot give them the time they need. Students are encouraged to schedule their appointments early in the writing process.
Every Monday: Saurwein 232
Tuesday-Sunday we’re located in Campus Center 313: The Owen Center
You will meet one-on-one with a Writing Center Consultant (a student peer who has completed Writing Center training). You can expect to discuss your paper with this knowledgeable, friendly peer, who will help you to make decisions and changes to your writing assignments and suggest best practices for your writing process. They may help you to review your assignment prompt(s), read the paper out loud, and plan next steps for you to work on independently.
Generally, no; when instructors require students to visit the Writing Center for a specific assignment, they may formally request visit records. In that case, we will send the instructor complete visit notes. You will always receive an emailed copy of your visit notes after each Writing Center session, and should feel free to forward this information to your instructor.
The Writing Center offers writing assistance for all Heidelberg University classes. You can check the informational guide at the top of the Writing Center schedule to see Consultant majors and specialties.
