The Writing Lab

Book a session.

Located on the first floor of Edith Garland Dupré Library (Dupré 155A)

We work with writers at any stage of the writing process. The Writing Lab welcomes students, faculty, and staff from all disciplines and also offers resources for those writing in English as a second language.

We are closed during University holidays and breaks.

It is important to us to accommodate folks with different levels of accessibility, so please contact us at if we can make your writing experience better.

What to Bring:

You can bring in your original assignment prompt given by your professor so that our tutors will have insight to your assignment. You can also bring in any part of your draft, digital or print, so that we can get an understanding of your writing style.

What to Expect:

Your tutor will look over your writing and help you form a plan to improve. Your tutor may also ask you questions about the topic of your paper to make sure you are not deviating from it. Be prepared to hear about organization, structure, and grammar when in a session. 

What We Don't Do:

Unfortunately, our tutors cannot copyedit the writing given to us, nor can we write your papers for you. We are here to help you get a good grasp on the writing process and help you become a better writer. We can’t guarantee a good grade, but we will do all that we can to help you. We will not, however, respond to papers that treat culturally sensitive issues with disrespect. We can help you understand new methods to write about culturally sensitive issues in a respectful manner.
