If you’d like to learn more, visit our information and application page.

Undergrad coaches must take English 402, which is offered each spring. To learn more about these positions, visit

Writing Coaches will be available at the UL from 5-8 each Wednesday. Sign up for an appointment on the clipboard at the UL! The first Write Night will focus on application essay writing, but students with any kind of paper are welcome.

Our writing coaches are friendly graduate and undergraduate students from a variety of academic disciplines who are specially trained in teaching writing. Our online resources are available to everyone; they offer helpful advice for writers and instructors on a variety of topics.
