Welcome to the College of Education Writing Resource

A fresh pair of eyes is a powerful tool during the drafting process. The Writing Resource is here to help you with your writing projects. Our mission is to support writers at every stage, to facilitate individual growth, and to foster a strong community of writers. Our services are free to College of Education graduate students throughout their development as academic and professional writers, from conceptualizing ideas to polishing and publishing.

Consulting and Workshops

We offer appointments, enrollment, walk-ins, and a graduate writing workshop. Bring your assignment, along with any questions you have. Together, we can begin to brainstorm, plan, and develop your draft. Tutoring is a collaborative process that works best over multiple sessions. Schedule follow-up appointments to work further into the craft of the writing.

Use our online scheduling program to schedule a 25- or 50-minute appointment with a writing tutor. Appointments are available from 1:00 – 5:00 Monday through Thursday.

Walk ins

Walk-in appointments are available on a first-come, first-serve basis from 12:00 - 1:00 Monday through Thursday. We will prioritize writers who do not already have an appointment for that week and did not sign up for enrollment.


Sign up for our enrollment program to meet weekly with a tutor for up to eight weeks this summer (please note the duration of your summer enrollment will depend on when you sign up for enrollment). Enrollments can start as early as June 6th. Space is limited. To secure your spot, email writing-resource@uiowa.edu with three possible times and we will do our best to accommodate you.
