Writing Center

We are still here for everything you write!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic Winthrop Writing Center will continue to support students virtually during the Fall 2020 semester.  While the physical space of the Writing Center will be closed, you will still be able to chat with tutors about your writing assignments, make changes to your document and get the information you need to strengthen your writing. We remain committed to helping Winthrop students become stronger writers and hope to see you online soon!

You can make your appointment using our scheduling calendar, If you have never used the Center, before, please register for an account before scheduling your appointment.

30 minutes before your consultation, upload or share the piece of writing you'd like to chat about to the Writing Center gmail:

Then at the time of your consultation log in to your Google Drive account, open the document you're discussing and the tutor will initiate a text chat with you. Video and voice chat are also available.

Thanks for your patience as we navigate remote work together. Should you have any questions or technical difficulties email the writing center at our gmail account above. 


About Us

The Writing Center, located in 242 Bancroft Hall, provides a free writing consultation service to all members of the University community: students, staff, administrators, and faculty. The Writing Center's purpose is to help writers at all levels learn more about their writing through tutoring sessions--and thus improve their ability to write well. 

Tutors help writers analyze assignments, address audiences appropriately, improve their composing processes, strengthen the focus and organization of their writing, and improve their control of the language. The Writing Center cannot provide a proofreading/editing service or guarantee better grades; its primary purpose is to improve your writing in the long term.

Although operating hours may vary from semester to semester, the Writing Center is open at least five days a week except during the summer. Scheduling an appointment ensures that a tutor will be available.  You can call the Center at 803-323-2138 for help with setting up your account, but once you have an account, you can access the Center's schedule and make appointments on your own.  We cannot make appointments through e-mail.

Meet our tutors!
