Writing Assistance

W&L students have access to tutorial assistance with their writing from two services on campus.

  • Writing Center    Peer tutors offer "individual tutorial assistance to students on any college writing task, from papers and lab reports in any stage of completion to resumes and application essays."   Located on the Main Floor of Leyburn Library.
  • Williams School Communications Center     Writing consultants "help you to say what you have to say as well as you can, show you strategies for better revising and self-editing, and refer you to appropriate sources for help on matters that aren’t solved during the appointment."  Located in Huntley Hall Room 118.
