The Writers Workshop, part of the Center for Writing Studies, is the writing center at Illinois. We provide free writing assistance for University of Illinois students, faculty, and staff from all disciplines and at all stages of the writing process. Discuss your writing with consultants who are experienced writers and teachers of writing. Call (217) 333-8796, or stop by, to set up a 50-minute session at one of our Workshop locations. Please see our appointment, schedule and policies pages for more information.

If you need to hire a proofreader, see our list of Editors for Hire, most of whom are current University of Illinois English Department instructors who have expressed an interest in doing this type of work for an hourly/per project rate. This should be negotiated with the individual.
