The Writing Center, located in the Student Success Center, offers writing support to all students at the University of Missouri. Tutors come from all majors and are familiar with a variety of writing styles and formats. Although tutors are not editors, they can help with any stage of the writing process, from initial brainstorming, to major structural revisions, to putting the finishing touches on a final draft. We also provide a newly-updated Online Writery where you can schedule appointments and submit drafts via your internet-connected device of choice! You can access information about all of our services via our website. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to call, email, or come by to chat with us!
