Thanks for a great summer

The Writing Center’s last day of summer coaching is Tuesday, July 26. Face-to-face coaching will resume when classes begin on Tuesday, August 23, and our Online Writing Coach system will reopen in September when our new coaches have completed their training. In the meantime, check out our handouts on a huge variety of writing topics. They can help you make progress on your dissertation, get a good draft of your application essay going, or get prepared for your fall classes. We look forward to seeing you in August!


The UNC Chapel Hill Writing Center is a free service for UNC students and faculty. Our writing coaches are friendly graduate and undergraduate students from a variety of academic disciplines who are specially trained in teaching writing. Our online resources are available to everyone; they offer helpful advice for writers and instructors on a variety of topics.
