Writers' Studio Appointments

Where is the Writers' Studio?

You can find us on the third floor of Jordan Hall, Rm. 304. 

How Do I Make an Appointment?

Go to and register using your Butler email address.

You can also cancel and reschedule your appointments via WCOnline! Please be courteous about cancellations! We know your schedule can change at the last minute, but whenever possible, we ask for at least two hours’ notice prior to a cancellation.

Please note that tutors will wait 10 minutes for you to arrive for your appointment. If you arrive after 10 minutes, your appointment will be marked as a "no show," to allow us to assist other writers.

Do I Have to Make an Appointment?

Although we welcome walk-in clients, making an appointment is the best way to ensure a tutor will be available when you need one. 

How Long Are Appointments?

That depends on you! Appointments are available in 30, 60, 90, or 120-minute increments - although you might have to move between tutors if you want a two-hour appointment! 

When deciding on the length of your appointment, consider what you are hoping to accomplish in the session. If you just received an assignment and want to brainstorm ideas, a 30-minute appointment might be reasonable. If you have a partial draft of an eight-page paper and need help focusing, developing, and organizing your ideas, a 60-minute session is likely to be more useful to you; likewise, if you have a six-page paper and want help with final editing and proofreading, you may benefit more from an hour-long session than you would from only 30 minutes.

For papers or projects of more than eight pages, we recommend at least a 60-minute session, and perhaps a 90- or 12o-minute session if you need significant help with revising, editing, proofreading, citing, documenting, and/or formatting. 

Can You Print My Paper, or Should I Bring a Hard Copy?

We're happy to print papers for appointments! You can email your assignment to or attach a file to your appointment on WCOnline.
