  • The OU Writing Center is a pedagogical service that supports the writing development of all members of the OU and Norman community. The primary goal of our consultations is to help writers learn something they can use in the future. Because of this, we do not serve as a proofreading or editing service, but instead strive to provide feedback that is thoughtful, intentional, and useful. 

We encourage you to use test out our various consultation options to see what helps you learn best. We offer the following consultation formats:

  • Face-to-face consultations are live, in-person consultations at one of our locations. Please see schedule to see both appointment and drop-in options.  

  • Video conference consultations are synchronous over video and/or chat. Writers are NOT required to enable their video during online appointments if they prefer to use chat only. 

  • Written feedback consultations are asynchronous appointments. Writers will upload their documents ahead of time to receive feedback at the end of the scheduled appointment slot. 



Our Writing Consultants are Eager to Work With You

Our writing consultants are all students here at the University of Oklahoma. We range in age, gender, academic discipline, linguistic background, and other interests but are all passionate about the work we do at the Writing Center. With undergraduate and graduate students working in multiple fields across campus, we are confident that we will be able to work alongside you in your writing projects.

Whether it’s brainstorming your dissertation, making the final touches on a short response paper, or working on a creative project, our consultants are available and ready to help.



Our Commitment

The OU Writing Center welcomes all writers and does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, language background, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability.  We consider difference to be a seed for learning, writing, and a just society.
