Writers' Workshop


Opening for Fall 2020 on August 31!

[COVID-19 Updates]

The Writers' Workshop provides free, one-to-one consultations for any member of the UMD campus community seeking to become a better writer. During summer 2020, all sessions will be held online. Our regular appointment system supports synchronous online meetings where you can connect with professional writing consultants using video, audio, chat, text, or any combination therein. Text and chat data is saved for those who want to return to it later. The system is easy to use and browser-based, so everyone can access it easily.

Because we all write, the Writers' Workshop is open to everyone on campus:

    • Undergraduate students
    • Graduate students
    • Staff
    • Faculty

Graduate student or faculty writing consultants will collaborate with you on any project, at any stage in the writing process, and in any discipline. Make an appointment or just walk in. You'll find us in the Securian Learning Commons located on the second floor of UMD's Kathryn A. Martin Library. Look for the wall covered with quotations in the right-hand corner of the second floor.
