Writing Studio


The new Writing Studio is committed to helping University of Florida students and faculty meet their academic and professional goals by becoming better writers. We support independent learning and encourage scholarship by providing one-on-one consultations, workshops tailored to specific classes (graduate and undergraduate), and faculty retreats focusing on publishing original research.

Students and faculty at all levels and in every discipline are welcome!

Who Are We?

Directed by Dr. Martin Simpson, the Writing Studio is staffed by consultants with extensive writing backgrounds. Most have graduate degrees, and many teach in the University Writing Program or English Department.  We are located in 2215 Turlington Hall, and our office phone is (352) 846-1138.

What Do We Do?

Schedule an Appointment

  • One-on-One Tutorials. The Writing Studio is a free service for current UF graduate and undergraduate students. Students have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a consultant on issues specific to their own particular development. Because our aim is to help students become more effective writers, we do not simply proofread or edit documents. We can, however, assist students to become better proofreaders and editors of their own work.
  • Classroom Workshops.
  • Writing Workshops for Graduate Students and Faculty.



Students taking distance classes during the fall and spring semesters can use our Tutortrac online schedule to sign up for an online session. When they schedule an online appointment, they’ll get instructions to walk them through the process, and they will get the same kind of live, individual attention that our in-person tutees receive.  Our online hours change from one term to another, so look at our scheduling software to see the open online time slots for this week.
