Elevate your writing.

Our goal at the Clemson University Writing Lab is to support all members of the Clemson community to become more confident and effective writers. For whatever you are working on, we can help you find the most effective way to communicate your message. Writers need feedback, sounding boards, and other people to coach them while they compose. At the Writing Lab, trained peer consultants will help you brainstorm, draft, and revise your projects.

Any discipline. Any level. Any stage. Any genre. Any writer.

If you have any questions, please email us at

Supported by the Clemson University English Department and the Graduate School.

“The people at the Writing Lab are so supportive and efficient. I was super stressed out. The consultant helped me come up with a plan of action and gave me tips on the new type of writing I was required to do. Seriously, one of the best services on campus.”

    Our Space in Cooper Library

    The New Home of the Writing Lab

    The Writing Lab has moved to Cooper Library! Our new facility is on the third floor in Room 301. Turn left from the staircase and look for the television on the wall. You will see our sign. The new space features various seating options, collaborative space, and additional space for workshops and seminars. This new space allows us to better connect with stakeholders across campus. Through this move, we aim to actively participate in the writing process.
