Helpful Handouts/Resources

Kindly keep in mind: Many of these handouts were used at our highly interactive UWC Writing Workshops, so you will notice many parts that need to be filled in by the learner or would benefit from explanation by an instructor. Your best bet is to print out the handout or scroll through, and if something doesn't make sense, come to the UWC and we'll help!

Also, please note that the University Writing Center has a wide variety of reference texts available for use in our main office. For a complete list of these texts, check out our catalog.
