Make An Appointment


We're committed to creating and supporting a culture of writing at Clemson. Throughout the year, we host workshops and events about writing to help Tiger Writers at all levels across campus.

All events are free and take place at the Clemson Writing Lab, on the third floor of Cooper Library.

Below is our calendar of events and short descriptions of these offerings.

    ENGL 1030 Writing Events

    The Writing Lab aims to support students in ENGL 1030 as they transition into college writing. For this purpose, we have several events throughout the year created specifically for students in ENGL 1030 courses.


    • ENGL 1030 Write-In

      Are you working on a project for ENGL 1030? Want to work in a single location with others working on projects for the same class? The ENGL 1030 Write-In is for you!

      Consultants will be on-hand along with snacks and coffee for this three-hour guided writing session. 

      This event is repeated at least twice per semester.
