Welcome to the Center For Writing and Communication!

The Center for Writing and Communication, located on the first floor of Ned R. Mcwherter Library, is a combined writing and speaking center that offers free, one-on-one consultations with a trained staff comprised of graduate students from the departments of English and Communication. We are available to offer students feedback on their writing and speaking assignments at any stage in the process. Students are strongly encouraged to schedule an appointment online, but walk-in sessions may at times be available when the CWC is open. For assistance locating resources and conducting research, contact the library at the Ask-A-Librarian page or you can set up a Research Appointment

Fall and Spring Hours- Monday-Thursday, 9am-5pm; Friday, 9am-noon.

Summer Hours- Monday-Thursday, 10am-3pm.

Whether you are working on a paper, presentation, or speech, we can help you brainstorm topics, develop a thesis, build your argument, help with research, organize your writing, develop editing strategies, and implement standard citation conventions. If you are delivering a speech, you can practice in our presentation studio.

All questions or concerns can be directed to the CWC Director, Jonathan Smith, at jmsmth35@memphis.edu.

To make an online consultation appointment, click on the online consultation link below. You will need your UofM credentials in order to do so. Once on the Upswing page, enter "writing" into the search bar. This should populate CWC consultants first, followed by non-UofM Upswing consultants. We suggest working with CWC consultants whenever possible, though Upswing consultants are available if you cannot find a CWC consultant available at your desired appointment time.
