Extra Tutors for Final 14

To meet the extra demand for tutoring appointments during the final 14 days of the semester, more tutors will be on duty during select days in the Emory Writing Center.  Please check WCOnline for extra tutor availability and to make an appointment, as we can only see walk-in clients on a limited basis.

This is a change from our previous practice of holding walk-in hours at the Woodruff Library during Final 14.  We will no longer hold satellite tutoring at Woodruff Library.  Please visit Emory Writing Center located at N212 in the Callaway Building if you have any questions.

As always, please bring a hard copy of your paper materials or, if working on a digital project, your laptop. For the full tutor appointment guidelines, see here.


Celebrate the National Day on Writing with the EWC!

In celebration of the National Day on Writing, the Emory Writing Center will be festively decorated and offering refreshments to visitors on Tuesday, October 20, 2015.  Additional celebration plans and activities will be announced as they are scheduled.
