Writing Services for Students

Writing Workshop

At Writing Workshop, undergraduate and graduate students can schedule a 30-minute in-person or online appointment with a Sweetland instructor to discuss course-related writing projects.

Peer Writing Centers

At our Peer Writing Centers, undergraduate students can schedule a 45-minute in-person or online appointment with a Sweetland-trained, undergraduate peer writing consultant to discuss any kind of writing, course-related or personal. We also offer eTutoring that allows students to upload their writing and receive written feedback.

Writing Guides

Our Writing Guides cover frequent questions writers at U-M face. We also have popular handouts used in our Peer Writing Centers available for download.

Requiring Attendance

As you encourage your students to use our services, we ask you not to require their attendance or offer credit for it. We find that students who come to us of their own accord are more motivated to benefit from the session, and leave with a more productive attitude toward their writing and our services. It is our policy not to provide "proof" of attendance. If you have any questions about this policy, contact Sweetland's Interim Associate Director, Simone Sessolo (sessolo@umich.edu).

International and Multilingual Student Support

Undergraduate international and multilingual writers can access resources on our International Student Support page.
