Welcome to the Writers Workshop!

The Writers Workshop contributes to the intellectual and creative activities of the University of Illinois by providing support for all writers in the campus community--undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff.

The Writers Workshop provides individual and small-group consultations, hosts workshops on academic and professional writing concerns, sponsors writing groups and writing retreats, and visits classrooms upon request to introduce our resources or to provide a tailored, interactive presentation. You can view our past workshops by visiting this page; any of these can be requested or tailored for a particular audience.

Visit our online schedule to book your appointment. Please see our appointment page for more information about our policies. To request disability-related accommodations for our services, please contact Dr. Carolyn Wisniewski at or call 217-333-8796.
