MARCH 30, 2020

Dear UofL Writers,

While the University is delivering courses online in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the University Writing Center will be offering only online appointments in which you upload a draft and receive written comments in response. Alll appointments for written feedback will be made on the University Writing Center schedule. For detailed instructions on how to make your appointment and what to expect from written feedback, follow this link.

Here are some details about how appointments will work during this time:

  • We will offer only written-response online appointments. There will be no face-to-face appointments for the remainder of the semester. There will also be no online live-chat appointments.
  • If you have a face-to-face appointment already scheduled between March 18-April 28 on either the University Writing Center or Health Sciences Writing Center schedules, your appointment will be automatically converted to an online, written feedback appointment. However, you will need to upload a draft to your appointment if you would like feedback. Please cancel your appointment if you do not want written feedback.
  • When you make an online, written response appointment, you must upload your draft by noon the day before your appointment, or your appointment will be cancelled and the time made available to other writers.
  • Writers will be limited to two appointments per week during this period.
  • We also have online resources on our Handouts, Video workshops, and Writing FAQs to help answer your questions and concerns about writing.
  • If you have questions about how to make an appointment, please email or call 502-852-2173.

Thank you for your patience and your support of the University Writing Center.

Bronwyn Williams, Director
