A Publication with a Purpose
At the core of the University Writing Center’s mission is the fostering and development of not only individual texts, but also writers of all genres at any stage of the writing process. As a resource, we provide writing support to Appalachian State University’s students, faculty, and staff, along with members of the Boone community. We believe that all writers benefit from sharing work with informed, attentive readers, and our collaborative methods reflect our respect for the individual writer, whose voice and objectives are essential for all our endeavors.
The ReVisioner, the University Writing Center publication, strives to promote and further our mission and, perhaps more importantly, our passion by encouraging a community of writing. Since April 2006, each edition has featured the work of consultants and clients, a claim the UWC is proud to be able to make. We, clients and consultants, are all writers, and The ReVisioner is a space for all of us to share our work with each other. In this issue, you will find various forms of texts from the University Writing Center and beyond, and you will also find writing tips and UWC happenings. The ReVisioner and University Writing Center staff hopes that you enjoy this collection of texts; you may even learn a little something about the craft of writing.
