Working with Sources

Incorporating others' work into your own can be difficult, especially when you are not sure what the conventions are for locating and citing appropriate academic sources. These links can help!

Who We Are

The Writing Studio offers Duke University undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to meet with trained writing tutors to discuss individual writing concerns. As a studio, this is a place for you as an artist/writer to work on your art. By discussing your work-in-progress with a trained tutor, you will be better able to move toward developing the awareness and skills that will enable you to improve as a writer.

Graduate and postgraduate student tutors from a number of different disciplines staff the Writing Studio. We have several specially trained tutors who work with non-native speakers. Many of our tutors have had some experience serving as teaching assistants in their own departments, and others have had some tutoring experience as well. All tutors go through extensive on-going training. We are committed to providing you with the best help we can.
