Writing Your Work
Beyond focusing on resources and research, there are ways the library can help with the writing process too, from a curated collection of books on writing to providing space for peer writing support. For even more Northwestern writing resources, click here.
- The Writing Place
Northwestern's center for peer writing consultations—specially trained undergraduate peer consultants are available to help anyone in the Northwestern community with any writing assignment or project. The consultants help people at any stage of the writing process, from analyzing an assignment and developing ideas to editing for correctness and a polished, professional finish.
- Graduate Writing Place
Serves graduate students from all across Northwestern’s many schools, departments, and programs, as well as postdoctoral students and Northwestern faculty. Clients may book appointments for individual writing consultations with Graduate Writing Fellows (PhD candidates at Northwestern) to review a variety of writing, from papers for coursework and publication to materials pertaining to the academic and non-academic job markets.
- Core Writing Collection
Located in Core at the main library and just outside the Writing Place, the Core Writing Collection is a carefully curated selection of books on writing that cover a number of styles, disciplines, languages, communities, etc. Check the collection out in person or click the link above to browse some of the titles.
