New: Online Tutoring

To better support writers who are unable to attend face-to-face tutorials on campus, the Writers Workshop is now offering limited online sessions. All of our online appointments are synchronous, which means that they happen in real-time using video and audio components. You don't need any special software (though a webcam and mic will help -- otherwise, you'll have to rely on a chat function); just make an appointment through our online scheduling system. Click here for more information about how to make an appointment.
