Build confidence in your writing 

We're here to help students, faculty, and staff become more confident writers. To this end, we offer a variety of free services including one-on-one sessions with expert writing consultants, workshops on a range of writing-related topics and a broad selection of handouts developed specifically for the needs of the FGCU community.

Work directly with one of our writing consultants on the questions and concerns you have about your writing and how you can solve them.

Sessions are available on both a walk-in and appointment basis, depending on what works best for your schedule. If you would like to book an appointment, simply follow the directions below.
