Welcome to the Writing Center!

Walk-ins are welcome, but people with appointments receive first priority, so you’re encouraged to book an appointment. If this is your first attempt to make an appointment this academic year, you’ll be prompted to register. You’re welcome to make one or two back-to-back appointments, as long as they are with the same consultant and fall within the same hour. The appointments start on the hour and half hour.

NEW: Online writing appointments! Book an appointment, select Yes. Schedule online appointment, and return to the booking website a few minutes before your appointment begins to access the meeting space.

No Show Policy – If you “no show” (miss an appointment without canceling) twice in a term, your account will be deactivated for the remainder of the term. You can still use drop-in appointments. To avoid this, please log in and cancel appointments you cannot attend.

  • The mission of the Writing Center is to support all Carleton students on any writing project and at any stage in the writing process, from brainstorming to polishing a final draft. Our aim is to improve writers, not just individual pieces of writing.
