Please encourage your students to visit us for help with any stage of the writing and research process. We offer:

Here is a brief paragraph about our services that you can include in your course Canvas page, syllabus, or class listserv.
The Odegaard Writing and Research Center (OWRC) offers free, one-to-one, 45-minute tutoring sessions for undergraduate, graduate, and professional writers in all fields at the UW. We will work with writers on any writing or research project, as well as personal projects such as applications or personal statements. Our tutors and librarians collaborate with writers at any stage of the writing and research process, from brainstorming and identifying sources to drafting and making final revisions.
