Center for Writing
Welcome to the University of Iceland Center for Writing
The Center for Writing offers writing support for all students, faculty and staff at the University of Iceland from all schools, faculties, and departments in both Icelandic and English.
We offer one-on-one sessions with trained writing tutors at the library of the School of Education and at the National and University Library on the main campus. The sessions last one hour and can be booked online at either the School of Education library or the National and University Library. After selecting the place you would like to meet, select English-language Tutoring to book a time.
Anybody at the University of Iceland can book a time with a tutor to discuss all types of university writing, from classroom papers to grant applications to final projects to articles for publication. The content of the meeting depends on the needs of the person booking the appointment. The only thing connected to writing that we do not cover in these times is proofreading and copy editing. We have a list of professional proofreaders available here.
Randi holds a Juris Doctorate (JD) from the University of California, Berkeley; an M.A. in linguistics from the University of Wisconsin, Madison; and a BA in environmental studies from Mount Holyoke College. Along with academic writing, she is a poet and one of the founding members of the writing collective Ós Pressan.
