The Writers Workshop is a service located in the Undergraduate Library in the back of the upper level. It is funded by the English Department http://www.cws.illinois.edu/workshop/. The Writers workshop at the UGL rovides individual and small-group consultations, hosts workshops on academic and professional writing concerns, sponsors writing groups and writing retreats.
Since the 1990s the UGL Instruction service has partnered with folks in the writers workshop to provide joint writing and research instruction support during instruction sessions. From 2016 on, the writers workshop and the UGL research and instruction folks have collaborated on a joint “Research and Writing Consultation” effort to provide peer support for students working on research papers.
