Welcome to the Kenyon College Writing Center.
Our staff is composed of trained Writing Consultants who conduct individual conferences with writers. We allocate about half an hour for a conference, but we're glad to meet with you as many times as you find necessary before your deadline.
A conference with a Writing Consultant can help you further your understanding of a topic and find ways to better articulate ideas by asking questions about your argument, organization, development, and style. Writing Consultants do more than merely proofread for you; they can work with you to cultivate long-term improvement by helping you recognize patterns of error. You don't have to have anything written down, but can use your conference to discuss the assignment and decide on an approach.
You can walk in during our scheduled Walk-In Hours or make an appointment with your Writing Liaison. Please note that walk-in shifts change on the hour. For a list of consultants, their majors, and the languages they speak see Meet the Staff.
We are located on the ground floor of Olin Library, in room 131, accessible through the left-hand door to Olin Auditorium.
