The Writing Studio is available to and welcomes all students: on-campus, distance, undergraduate, and graduate. Our experienced writing tutors offer individual attention and support for writing assignments in any subject.
Half-hour sessions can be scheduled by clicking the link to the Writing Studio Calendar, where you will also find the current studio hours
Or, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 719-587-7898 with your desired meeting day/time. If you are a distance student, please indicate your time zone. It’s best to schedule in advance, but “drop-ins” are usually feasible.
The Writing Studio supports student learning in all disciplines through peer and professional tutoring, as well as classroom presentations on a variety of topics. Tutors will work with you at any stage in the writing process, so that you can become a better writer. Adams State students and alumni who need help with resumes, cover letters, personal statements or any documents related to a scholarship, job, or graduate school application should visit the Writing Studio as well. We welcome recommendations for workshop topics. Contact us with your suggestions.
Writing Studio tutors can help you with:
- Paper planning
- Sentence structure
- Publication styles: MLA, APA, AMA, CHICAGO, ASA, APSA

How to Use the Studio
- Start your writing process early.
- Consider the two or three most important items or issues you want to address before you visit. We will start where you want to begin.
- Tutoring sessions last about 30 minutes and are on a first-come, first-served basis unless you have scheduled an appointment.
- You may drop in to work with a tutor, to use the computers and books, or to gather other resources.
- Make an appointment, so you will be our priority.
- You may call or e-mail to schedule an appointment or to ask a question.
- You determine whether or not we should notify a professor that you have worked in the Studio. The decision is always yours.
- Come with a growth mindset and a willingness to learn.
We Help You Become a Better Writer
- We can facilitate any stage of your writing process.
- We can help you develop and organize your ideas.
- You determine the purpose of your writing and the concerns we address.
- Once you have a draft, we respond to the clarity and organization of your writing.
- We help you to identify patterns of errors and to learn how to avoid those errors.
- If papers are polished, we assist you in a final review and in proofreading skills.
- Because of high demand or time constraints, we may not be able to cover every item you wanted to, so please make another appointment before you leave
