Connect to the Writers’ Studio Front Desk on Teams

In this space you will feel immediately welcome. Gather around a table, in-person or virtually, to discuss your writing issues, cozy up on a comfortable chair. A peer consultant who has been university trained in writing response will talk with you one-on-one at any stage of your writing, about any aspect of it, regarding any subject you’re addressing. Do you need help understanding an assignment? Coming up with an idea? Organizing your thoughts? Developing a thesis statement? Making your sentences clear? Documenting sources correctly? Do you need help with grammar, punctuation, or spelling?

Our sessions focus on revision, on helping you notice your own writing patterns, and on showing you how to apply newfound skills to your future work. We don’t simply edit or proofread your paper; we partner with you toward becoming a more organized, resourceful, exacting, and accomplished writer.
