Undergraduate Library, Room 251

Our UGL location contains a range of seating options, including round tables located just outside the entrance to the Workshop (ideal for group consultations) and cubicles inside the Workshop (ideal for individuals who would prefer to work in a quieter environment).

Walk-ins are welcome, and you can also reserve an appointment through our scheduling system.

Online Consultations 

In addition to our on-campus locations, the Writers Workshop also offers online consultations to better support writers on and off campus. Online consultation 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

  • Sunday, 1:00pm – 10:00pm
  • Monday – Thursday, 10:00am – 10:00pm

Written Feedback Appointments

In a Written Feedback Appointment, the consultant will read and respond to your work, and will return written feedback at the end of your appointment time. There is no live conversation with your consultant. You can find more information on our Written Feedback Appointments page, or reserve one via our appointment system.
