Writing Center

The APU Writing Center offers several forms of writing support that are free and available to all APU students:

  • In-person Appointments: At any stage of the writing process, students can meet with a writing coach and receive individualized support to improve their writing projects and, more importantly, their long-term writing skills. Learn more about scheduling an appointment, and visit the APU Writing Center website to learn more about us and our services.
  • Online Appointments: Graduate and professional students can work with a writing coach online. During online appointments, students and writing coaches use video or chat and a mutual whiteboard space to work together in real time.
  • Walk-in Hours: Walk-in hours are available at the East Campus location for students who would like a writing consultation but do not have a scheduled appointment. View the current walk-in hours and location.
  • Workshops: The Writing Center provides several workshops throughout the year for students. Join us for discussions and practical guidance on writing-related topics. Workshop dates are listed on our calendar.
  • Resources: Stop by any of our locations for handouts on more than 35 writing challenges ranging from brainstorming to documentation.
  • Speaking Center Appointments: Students can meet with a speaking coach and receive individualized support to improve their speaking projects and presentation assignments.
  • Graduate Writing Assistance: Ask us about our graduate-specific tips on dealing with writer’s block, writing dissertation literature reviews, improving productivity, and much more!
