Welcome to the University of Maine Writing Center!

Mission Statement

The University of Maine Writing Center works with all students and faculty on any kind of composition at any point in the process. Our mission is to create a lasting and positive relationship between writers and their writing through peer-to-peer collaboration.

We are a Safe Zone certified learning space committed to empowering and energizing all writer’s identities.

Come see us!

 Our main location is in 402 Neville Hall, but in our quest to write where the writers are, we’ve opened Writing Center Satellite locations in student hubs across campus. We now have locations in the Commuter Lounge, ground floor of the Memorial Union;  Student Accessibility Services, 104 East Annex; the First Year and Transfer Center, 145 Memorial Union; the Multicultural Center, 312 Memorial Union; the Honors College, first floor of Colvin Hall; and evening tutoring in Fogler library. You can even find us online!
