Writing Support

The Howe Writing Across the Curriculum (HWAC) initiative is deeply invested in helping Miami faculty and graduate students achieve their writing goals as scholars. The same writing values we ask instructors to share with their students guide the writing support we offer.

Because we believe writing is not natural but a skill developed with time and effort, we offer weekly writing hours on Friday mornings (8:30AM—12:00PM) and two full-day writing retreats per semester (plus one over J-term). These events also align with our belief that writing is social. We are glad to be able to connect Miami faculty and graduate students across disciplines in group writing settings. We invite you to take advantage.
