Abstract

Writing development for all students is a concept that is taking root across the higher education sector in the UK.This chapter introduces the idea of writing centres in UK higher education and argues that university writing centres are an ideal location from which to build—along with other types of writing support—Writing in the Disciplines (WiD) and Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) initiatives and programmes.
