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 sharpen skills specific to writing about literature. Our staff can answer your questions about literary analysis, writing, revision, grammar, punctuation, and citation.
