Welcome to the Kenyon College Writing Center. We are located on the third floor of Peirce Hall.
The Kenyon Writing Center is composed of trained, student-staffed writing consultants who conduct individual conferences with writers. We provide assistance for any type of writing, within any discipline, during any stage of the writing process. 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; we help you cultivate long-term improvement through recognizing patterns of error.
Walk-in hours are Sunday 2-5 p.m. and 7-10 p.m., Monday through Thursday 4-10 p.m. and Friday 2-3 p.m. from the second week of each semester through the first reading day of finals week.
*Please note that walk-in shifts change on the hour. Shifts may be covered by other consultants if need be; double-check that the consultant you might want to see is working their typical shift via these updated walk-in hours or make an appointment with your writing liaison.
For a list of consultants, their majors and the languages they speak, see Meet the Staff. We typically allocate about half an hour for a conference but are glad to meet as many times as you find necessary before your deadline.
