Welcome New Tutors!

Say hello to the five new faces that will be tutoring at the WVU Writing Center. To find out what writing means to Amy, Torrie, Caitlyn, Anastasia, and Amanda check out the official WVU Writing Center website here!

Be a part of the first Writing Center podcast

We are currently recording the first Writing Center podcast. We would like tutors to take a minute or two to record their thoughts about the WVU Writing Center. Please share! It's pretty easy - here's what you have to do:

1. While you're in the WC, think about how the writing center has impacted your experience at WVU.
2. Sit down at the PC by the windows and click on the "Audacity" Icon to bring up the audio recording program. Put on the headset (with the microphone), hit record, and start talking. Your recording doesn't have to be perfect - we can edit the recording very easily.
3. Save your project to the computer, then email the file to John at

We'd love to let the greater WVU community hear your voices, so pleae take a couple minutes to share the writing center love.
