The Writing Place

The Writing Place is Northwestern’s center for peer writing consultations. Whether you are writing a paper for a class, composing application letters and essays, or working on some other writing project, a Writing Place consultant can help you at any stage of the writing process, from talking about ideas to developing a plan to revising and editing a draft.

Writing Place consultants are not graders or ghostwriters, but attentive readers who are trained to engage you in a conversation about your writing and help you plan and revise it.

Consultations are free and available to anyone in the Northwestern community: undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, or staff.

Before making an appointment, you must register online, using your Northwestern e-mail address. That will become your Writing Place log-in. Please choose a password that is different from your NU computer password.
