Literature Lab

The English Program Lit Lab, located on the 5th floor of Stabler Hall, provides students with individualized writing assistance to support the learning they are doing in their English courses.

The Lit Lab help desk, alternatively staffed by faculty and peer mentors, can help students identify writing problems, develop solutions, and hone skills specific to writing about literature. Help desk staff are available to answer questions and provide writing and technical assistance for all students. Reading guidance and resources are also available for learning literary analysis, writing, revision, grammar, punctuation, and citation. Visit the Lit Lab to find out more about all it offers, including faculty-led workshops and student study groups.
