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.

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.
