Virtual Writing Center

Writing Support When You Need It

The Antioch University Virtual Writing Center is a dynamic space for both students and faculty to enter conversations about writing. We consciously use “best practices” around writing support, offering Antioch University students a robust menu of resources, access to peer tutoring in both synchronous and asynchronous formats, and consultations with faculty specialists. Antioch University’s Virtual Writing Center extends and complements the campus-based writing centers in offering AU students writing resources and quality feedback on their writing no matter when they need it. Students may submit their writing for feedback from trained AU peer consultants or use any of the resources that have been developed at Antioch University. All blogs, resources, and videos about writing have been generated by AU faculty or graduate students working in the VWC.

Through our partnership with, students may submit questions, receive feedback from a peer tutor as well as schedule live virtual conversations, or echats, with a faculty consultant or GA peer tutor. The VWC is fundamentally an Antioch resource, and we are committed to ensuring that the VWC reflects AU ideals and our practices. We are eager to hear from AU students about their experiences. Along with automatic surveys, we also accept emails at Please do not hesitate to offer ideas for future materials and provide us with any other suggestions for our growth.
