The Writing Workshop

Please check out our new webpage at


At the Writing Workshop a staff of trained peer tutors is available to meet with you at every stage of the writing process.  You can meet with a tutor to discuss ideas for an upcoming assignment, edit a rough draft of a paper, or review a professor's comments on completed work.  Tutors meet with first-year students, senior thesis writers, and even faculty members. Everyone is welcome and all services are free.

To schedule an appointment, go to your WesPortal, click on the Academics section, and select the Writing Workshop Account link. There you will create an account and see availability to setup an appointment. Appointments are held every hour, on the hour, in each of our locations. (All appointments are currently held virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.) The duration of each appointment is 45 minutes.

If all appointments are full, you can now join a waitlist, which will alert you by email if an appointment becomes available. In order to join the waitlist for a Workshop day, click the "join waitlist" link below any day in the scheduler. The pop-up box will allow you to select a specific tutor and time period to be placed on the waitlist for. You can also set the waitlist to alert you to all openings and for all times.


The Writing Workshop is open this summer, from July 7 through August 27. We hope to see you soon!
