Writing Assistance

Writing Center  at W&L

Sign up to meet with a tutor here. Walk-in appointments are welcome.

The Writing Center offers 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 level of Leyburn Library (Room M11), the Center is open Sunday through Thursday from 8-10 p.m.

NOTE: Writing tutors do not proofread or edit student work; rather, they teach students to recognize and correct their own errors with the goal of making the student a more confident and self-sufficient writer. In keeping with the Honor System, students who come to the Center must acknowledge Writing Center help on any project they submit for a grade.
