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.

Visit our online schedule to book your appointment. Please see our appointment page for more information about our policies.

Finals Week (Dec. 17-20) -- Yes, we're open!

The Writers Workshop will have modified hours during finals week. We will be open at our main location (251 UGL); all other locations will be closed.

Important: During finals week, we offer drop-in sessions only. This has become our finals week policy due to high numbers of missed appointments in past semesters. Drop-in sessions are on a first-come, first-served basis: you’ll come to the WW’s main location, 251 UGL, and sign up at the front desk. Please note that we will have multiple consultants available to work with writers. Drop-in sessions typically last about 30 minutes; they can sometimes last longer for graduate students or longer (8+ pp.) papers.


Hours (UGL only)

Online Tutoring Appointments

To better support writers who are unable to attend face-to-face tutorials on campus, the Writers Workshop is offering online sessions. During Finals Week, our limited online appointments are reserved for students who cannot physically visit the Writers Workshop for a consultation. To make an appointment, please review our instructions for online tutorialsand then select an open time on the "Finals Week -- Online Tutoring" schedule.

The Writers Workshop will close for the semester on Wednesday, Dec. 20th, at 4pm. We will reopen for the Spring semester on January 17.
