WKU Writing Center

The Writing Center offers individual conferences about writing with our staff of English majors and graduate students. Our services are available to all Western Kentucky University students.

Take a video tour of the Writing Center or learn about our thesis writing workshops on our Resources for Thesis Writers page!



Effective March 23rd, our tutoring hours will be conducted online and not face-to-face through the end of the semester.



Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. — 4:00 p.m.



Sunday - Thursday 5:00 p.m. — 9:00 p.m.


Online feedback will be available to all WKU students, not just those at distance campuses or those enrolled in web courses.

Tutors will be working their usual hours remotely to offer emailed feedback to papers submitted via our online submission form here.

You do NOT need to schedule an appointment through TutorTrac when you submit your paper for online response; we will schedule the appointment for you. It is not a real-time meeting with a tutor; you will get feedback sent by email by the end of the appointment time.

Students who submit papers will receive an email that day (or on the next working day if they submitted after tutoring hours) that tells them when they are scheduled to receive emailed feedback from their tutor. We will be working to respond as quickly as we can**



What We Do: 

Writers need feedback from readers to help refine their writing. The Writing Center can give you this feedback. Our tutors will talk with you about your writing to help you:

  • brainstorm ideas

  • clarify main points

  • strengthen logic and support

  • smooth out organization

  • integrate sources and credit them properly

  • fine-tune sentence style

  • learn to proofread

Because we want to help you become a better writer, we won't edit or proofread your paper for you. We will help you learn to revise and edit so you will be better able to catch your own errors and improve your own content, organization, and style.
