Where to Find Us

King Library

Our main location, on the first floor of King Library, was established in 2007 and features an open concept with tables where you can write and meet with your consultant. When you arrive, just check in at the front desk.

Peabody Hall

Our satellite location in Peabody Hall was established in 2008 and is also referred to as the Windate Writing Center, in honor of a grant from Helen Windate. This center is located on the lower floor of Peabody in Room 18. Just look for the Writing Center sign and check in with the consultant.

Farmer School of Business

The first Howe writing center was founded in 1996 at the Farmer School of Business. Now called the Howe Center for Business Writing (HCBW), this business-focused arm of the Howe Writing Center is located in 2045 FSB. The HCBW has spaces for writers to meet with writing consultants either individually or in groups.


Live Online Appointments are designed for writers who prefer to meet with an HWC consultant virtually. These consultations take place in real-time via our online platform WCOnline.

Written online appointments are for writers unable to meet during our live or in-person hours, or who prefer entirely written feedback. The writer is responsible for scheduling an appointment, filling out an appointment form in detail, and uploading a draft and other relevant documents. During the appointment time, an HWC consultant will read and respond to this draft. The writer then receives written feedback (via Miami email) shortly after the appointment ends.
