Peer Writing Consultant Program


If you are an undergraduate student seeking writing help, you have two options, our faculty-led Writing Workshop or our student-led Peer Writing Center and its satellite locations. Please visit our In Person Writing Support for hours and scheduling information. You may also use our OWL (Online Writing Lab) to connect with a writing consultant over video chat. More information on the OWL is available on our Web Based Writing Support page.

Sweetland Peer Writing Center

The Peer Writing Center and its campus-wide satellite offices are part of the Sweetland Center for Writing. Our main center is housed in G219 Angell Hall with satellite locations in the Undergraduate Library, Alice Lloyd Hall, and the Duderstadt Center.

Sweetland-trained peer writing consultants offer traditional face-to-face consulting as well as online consulting via OWL (Online Writing Lab). Consultantss operate according to the Peer Writing Consultant Program Mission Statement.

Writers of all skill levels can talk with our consultants about papers from across the disciplines. We’re not an editing service, but we’re eager to talk with writers who bring in academic essays, cover letters, resumes, application essays, multimodal compositions, creative pieces, or questions they have, about global concerns, such as organization, or local ones, such as mechanics.

Writers can visit us at any stage of the writing process from brainstorming to developing ideas in drafts, or we can help develop strategies for polishing prose.
