The Writers' Block

Book a Session

The Writers' Block offers virtual and in-person tutoring sessions. Scoll down to our video intro!

Meet with our trained peer tutors, who can coach you as you start or improve any piece of writing. 

We'll match you with the best tutor for your assignment, and their available times can vary.

  • In-person Writers' Block sessions on weekdays in Sisson 142. 
    • Evenings & Sundays, meet @ Lougheed Learning Commons library, at the staircase.
  • Virtual Writers' Block sessions are smooth and effective -- and available in all of our hours.
    • Meet your tutor in a Teams call!
  • Build your skills: We help with any writing skill -- such as thesis statements, citing sources, organization, editing, etc.

Our trained peer tutors help you write your paper the way you want to. We can’t edit for you, but we help you make good choices in your own writing.

  • Peer tutors are trained to help you gain confidence about your writing assignment.
  • Talk with a tutor and see your writing in a new light, even if you're just getting started.
  • Send us your assignment, your draft, your concerns -- whatever you've got.
  • No one writes perfectly on the first try! But you're in luck: we can help you figure it out.

Plan ahead and book your appointment. We offer email feedback and online tutorials through Teams.

The Writers' Block services are always completely free for SUNY Potsdam students.
