Howe Writing Across the Curriculum logo

The Howe Writing Center (HWC) is the student-focused arm of the Howe Center for Writing Excellence (HCWE). Our mission is to provide Miami writers with helpful feedback and support on their writing projects. We pursue this mission with an expertly-trained staff of undergraduate and graduate student consultants from a variety of academic disciplines. We are guided by the HCWE's principles on writing, especially the idea that writing is social and rhetorical and writers benefit from talking and sharing drafts with other writers.

The HWC is overseen by Dr. Elizabeth Hutton (Director) and Kate Francis (Manager), with help from a small team of Graduate Assistant Directors.

Our consultants come from all across Miami

We take pride in building a staff of consultants from a variety of academic disciplines. While every consultant is expertly-trained to help you with any writing assignment, we know some of our users may prefer to schedule time with a consultant from their own field.
