The Writing Studio has been a vibrant part of the university's writing community for more than 25 years and stands as proof of our commitment to Writing Across the Curriculum.

We offer a free peer consultation service for students. Peer consultants help students focus on the organization and content of ideas within their essays.

We offer quality one-on-one writing consultations to students by creating a safe, comfortable and professional environment. Students can share their writing and thoughts and, in turn, consistently receive meaningful attention, criticism and instruction.

We contribute to the learning experience of undergraduate and graduate students by not only offering employment opportunities, but by providing extensive training over a variety of topics related to tutoring, learning and writing.

We offer support services to UMKC faculty about syllabus and assignment design, providing in-class workshops and maintaining sample paper files.

For Fall 2020, all consultations are online.

Our peer consultants primarily work one-on-one with students. Consultations last 20 to 50 minutes. Please have your assignment sheet, the assignment rubric and your draft available at the time of your consultation.
