Welcome to the Ohio State Writing Center!

The Ohio State University Writing Center is now closed for Autumn 2023. We'll reopen for Spring 2024 on Tuesday, January 16. In the meantime, register for an account with us to be notified when our schedule goes live, and learn more about our appointment types below.

Working on writing projects this semester?

Make an appointment with us! From brainstorming ideas to giving feedback on your drafts, our consultants can help you at any stage in the writing process. Use the login to the left to register for an account, sign in, and schedule an appointment.

What type of appointment should I make?

That depends! We currently offer three different appointment types to make our appointments accessible to a wide range of writers. Learn more about each appointment type and their advantages below:

  • Want to meet on campus and in person with one of our writing consultants? Select from the "Smith Lab In Person" schedule.
  • Want to meet online with one of our writing consultants? Select from the "Online Live Chat" schedule to make a virtual appointment.
  • Too busy to attend an appointment, but still want to get feedback before you work is due? Select from the "Online Drop-Off" schedule to make an appointment to get written feedback within 48 hours of your selected time.  

How do I join a writing accountability group?

Hoping to make more time to work on your writing? Join the Writing Center for our virtual writing groups, which meet weekly via Zoom to provide writing accountability and community throughout the semester. We welcome all writers from across campus, including undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff and postdocs. These groups are especially ideal for writers working on long-term projects. We encourage you to commit to participating each week in one or more writing groups, or to join us periodically as your schedule allows. Learn more and register for our groups at go.osu.edu/writinggroups.
