What is the Writing Center?

The Writing Center is a collaborative environment which offers writing consultations free of charge to anyone affiliated with the University of Hawai`i - undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, and visiting scholars. 

Our writing consultants are trained to help at all stages of the writing process; whether you are just getting started, revising a draft, or at some point in between, we can help with your essays, research papers, resumes, letters, creative work, and more.
