The University of Mississippi Writing Center:

Aside from one-on-one meetings with teachers during office hours, a great way to improve your writing is to work with writing consultants at one of the University’s writing centers. We offer free writing consultation services for UM students. Our highly trained peer consultants work alongside UM students on projects in all disciplines at any stage of the composition process. Our centers provide access to one on one consultations, group workshops, and other writing focused resources. Our services are delivered face to face and in online platforms through our multiple campus locations in Oxford, Tupelo, and Southaven. We work to help UM students cultivate individualized strategies for becoming independent, effective, and confident writers. No matter your home campus, you can make appointments at any of our centers through our online reservation system.
