AATC Writing Support Center

Writing Support Center Updates

The Writing Studio will remain closed and we will have no in-person services through Spring 2021.

As a reminder, personal statements for graduate school may ONLY be booked on the Personal Statement calendar. We are experiencing high demand, so please keep checking back to see available appointments.

Due to AATC and University policy, you should not misrepresent yourself on the calendar (e.g., signing up for a graduate school statement on the Online Writing Appointment calendar and saying it is for a scholarship or booking an appointment for a friend using your account). Using your account in this way could result in consequences that limit your access to our system.

Why do students choose to use the Writing Support Center?

  • We help build better writers, not just better papers
  • We view writing and reading as a process that we’re here to help with
  • We help students build their academic confidence and competence
  • We have a friendly atmosphere where students can discuss their writing

If you would like a Writing Specialist to visit your class, please visit our interest form.

The Writing Specialists would be happy to schedule a visit to your online class or send a brief video about our services. We can provide the following services:

  • A 15-20 minute presentation on AATC services (Note: This can be for any class with a CRN)

  • A customized workshop tailored to your class developed in consultation with you (Note: For a customized workshop, we need the request at least 4 weeks in advance)

  • A generalized workshop on a writing topic (e.g., how to avoid plagiarism, thesis writing, or grammar) developed in consultation with you

Due to high demand for visits and workshops, we will only be able to do in-class virtual workshops for classes outside of the field of composition.

Please contact Kevin Sitz (kwsitz@ucdavis.edu) for more information.
