The Writing Place

The Writing Place is a tutoring service sponsored by the English Department. Students come to the Writing Place to work with peer tutors on specific writing tasks, including brainstorming ideas for college writing assignments, organizing rough drafts, revising, editing, and doing library research. The Writing Place tutors are students who take a course that prepares them to provide effective feedback and assistance. Specific materials and computer resources are available in the Writing Place to supplement class instruction and develop composition skills.

The Writing Place schedules students for 30 or 60-minute appointments, depending upon students’ needs. Students may schedule up to two appointments on a weekly basis for each writing assignment if desired. While we do try to accommodate drop-in appointments, we strongly encourage students to book tutoring sessions in advance. Students may be referred to the Writing Place by their instructor or can request an appointment by using the link provided on this page. Students may contact the Writing Place Coordinator for more information, questions, concerns, and/or appointments.

Thanks for your interest! We look forward to meeting you and supporting you in your writing tasks and ventures!
