The Iliff Writing Center

The Iliff Writing Center offers assistance to any member of the Iliff community, from novices to published authors,  at any point in the writing process. The sort of writing required for the graduate degrees Iliff offers is quite unlike like anything else; we can help you figure it out.

We are open to all parts of the Iliff community, including students, staff, and instructors. The center specializes in structure and grammar issues in specific assignments or projects.  We would love to help you improve your writing, but this is not a copy-editing service.

Iliff engages in a collaborative effort with students with disabilities to reasonably accommodate student needs. We encourage students to contact their assigned advisor to initiate the process of requesting accommodations. The advising center can be contacted by e-mail (advising@iliff.edu).
