Writer's Rooms

Writers' Rooms are dedicated times and places for writers of all stripes to work on their academic writing projects (e.g., scholarly articles, dissertations, etc.). Writers should plan to spend most of the two-hour block in independent writing; however, Writing Lab tutors will be available for very brief, limited consultations if concerns arise during the writing time.

Writers should bring whatever materials they need for successful work on their projects, including laptops, books and articles, style guides, research data, white board markers, pens, paper, etc.

All Writers' Rooms are held in WTHR 420. There is a maximum attendance of 25 people for every date.

Spring 2020 Schedule

During the spring term, Writers' Rooms will be held the second and fourth Mondays of each month from 3:30–5:30 pm. However, there is no Writer's Room during the first week of classes.
