Oxford Writing Center

The Oxford Writing Center (OWC) of Emory University serves as an important site of learning for Oxford students, offering a supportive space for students to grow as flexible, thoughtful communicators. We do this through a combination of individual writing conferences, college-wide workshops, and writing-related resources. Because our focus is on supporting students’ own learning as communicators, we welcome all forms of writing students may be working on, whether it is for classroom, professional, public, or personal purposes. Because writing often makes meaning across languages, cultures, and modes, we also welcome writing that is multilingual or multimodal.  Writers grow each time they write, and we are here to support that growth, whatever the writing situation.

In addition to our workshops and writing resources, the OWC offers Oxford students 45-minute individual writing conferences with peer writing consultants. Our consultants are recommended by faculty and are specially trained to work with student writers through an independent study course on the theoretical and practical aspects of writing center work.

During writing conferences, consultants mentor, teach, and brainstorm one-on-one with student writers in a supportive, encouraging learning environment that is sensitive to the needs of both monolingual and multilingual students. Students can expect lively discussions about their writing that will help them think through their writing situations and the choices available to them to address those situations effectively. Using their own knowledge, combined with consulting resources such as handbooks, style manuals, and writing center handouts, consultants work with students on all stages and dimensions of their writing. Consultants can help writers brainstorm before they have ever written a word, think through how to select and integrate evidence, develop a plan for structuring their ideas and paragraphs, or learn to polish their style, grammar, and documentation. When working on multimodal projects, tutors can help students think through their rhetorical situations and the choices available to them when combining modes like text, visuals, and audio.
