Overheard in the UWC

The staff at the University Writing Center works very hard to create a fun, warm, and inviting environment.   The challenge, of course, is balancing this with a productive and driven work force.  We are able to have a fantastic time, while still providing helpful, collaborative, and engaging sessions for our clients.  Although many misconceptions exist about writers, a common truth is that to be a writer is to have a voice. Over the course of a few weeks, The ReVisioner staff challenged everyone in the UWC to write down some of the more ridiculous things we converse about for a segment called, “Overheard in the Writing Center.”  The feedback was immediate and hilarious.  We hope you enjoy this peak behind the scenes of the UWC and this glimpse of the people responsible for the continued success of our Writing Center.
