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.



For Fall of 2020, ALL of our tutoring will be online.  To make an appointment, go to our scheduling page at  Log on with your Gatorlink and password, and follow instructions.  You’ll receive an autoreply confirming your appointment, and the day of the appointment you will receive an email with a Zoom link for your session.  Clicking on that link will get you into a waiting room, and your tutor will be with you at the scheduled time.
