Mission & Mechanics

The Iliff Writing Lab offers assistance to any member of the Iliff community who wants to brush up on writing skills or who would like a consultant to check a particular assignment at any point in the process. We can talk through a plan before you begin a project.  We specialize in helping students who are new to the quirks of theological education or settling back into the world of academic writing.  The sort of writing required for the graduate degrees Iliff offers is not quite like anything else; we can help you figure it out. 

We are open to all parts of the Iliff community, such as students, staff, and instructors. The lab specializes in structure and grammar issues in specific assignments or projects. There is a 10-page (double-spaced, 12pt font) per week page limit. We would love to help you improve your writing, but this is not a copy-editing service.

Yes, you need an appointment if you want us to read your work. Appointments are available during the fall, winter, and spring academic terms. Writing questions are welcome at on our Iliff Bloomfire community, writing@iliff.edu, or at the Writing Lab table on the main floor of the Ira J. Taylor Library.
