Welcome to the Center for Excellence in Writing!

Your voice is like no other. Welcome to the conversation.

The Center for Excellence in Writing is offering synchronous online appointments seven days a week this Spring semester. You can schedule an appointment now! 

Our friendly consultants are ready to have a conversation with you about your writing project and give you any feedback or support that will help.  Our virtual consultation experience is as beneficial as our in-person consultations. 

If you have questions or need assistance in navigating the WCOnline platform, please contact the CEW at writing@buffalo.edu .
