Two students work together on a paper in the Writing and Media Lab.

Writing & Media Lab

In the Writing & Media Lab (WML), our trained student Consultants provide one-on-one or small group assistance with student writing and multimedia projects. We can help with written essays, research papers, presentations, video projects, and podcasts, just to name a few! We can support you at whatever stage of the project you’re in, from brainstorming to final edits, and help you progress to the next level.

Collaboration and conversation are a vital part of scholarly work at the college level, and everyone can benefit from talking through their ideas!
