Writing & Media Lab (WML)

Student Consultants provide one-on-one assistance with writing and media consultations, as well as collaborative digital projects. The WML Consultants can assist you at whatever stage of the project that you’re in and help you progress to the next level.

We’re not just a place for those who “need help;” everyone can benefit from intelligent conversation about their work!


Make an appointment with a WML Consultant.

To “walk-in,” check Student News in MyFurman for the Zoom link or email wml@furman.edu to request the link.

(You must use your Furman email account to enter the Virtual WML. We will not admit you if you email from a different account.  Email jean.schwab@furman.edu with questions or concerns.)

A note for Furman students: The Virtual Writing & Media Lab opened for both appointments and walk-ins during normal hours starting Sunday, 3/29/20!

After making an appointment, you’ll receive a confirmation email that will also include the link to the Virtual WML.
