University Writing Center


Director: Dr. Terry Kundell (

We serve UMES undergraduates across the disciplines. 
 The Writing Center is open for Summer 2022 ONLINE ONLY!  (5/31/22 through 8/5/22)

To access the My Writing Center Online site and make an appointment, log in through the UMES portal; the Writing Center is the last app there.
The University Writing Center is dedicated to providing the University community one-on-one assistance with all types of writing at all stages of the writing process.  
NOTE:  The Writing Center tutors will help you and provide you with skills to do your own writing, revising, and editing, but they will not write, revise, or edit for you. 

The University Writing Center is staffed by a half-time Director, who has a Ph.D. in Rhetoric and Linguistics, and part-time peer tutors from various majors, who are selected based on their strong writing and interpersonal skills and trained to assist students with writing issues across the disciplines.  

You can cancel or change appointments online up to an hour before the appointment time.  If you miss 2 scheduled appointments, you will be blocked from the online scheduling system and will have to contact Dr. Kundell to discuss the issue.
