Locations and Hours

This Fall, the Howe Writing Center is back for on-campus consultations at our King Library, Farmer School of Business, and Peabody Hall locations. We follow all campus health and safety guidance and regularly clean our consulting spaces.

For those who would rather meet with a consultant virtually, Live Online Appointments are available. These consultations take place in real-time via video conferencing.

Written Online Appointments are available for Miami student writers who are taking online courses or who attend a regional campus.

If you have any questions about scheduling an appointment with us, please contact Howe Writing Center Manager Kate Francis (francik@miamioh.edu).

Where to Find Us

King Library

Our main location on the first floor of King Library, established in 2007, features an open concept with several tables and meeting areas to write and meet with consultants. When you arrive you’ll see a welcome desk where you check in for your appointment.

Peabody Hall

Our satellite location in Peabody Hall was established in 2008 and is 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 Howe Writing Center’s ties to the Farmer School of Business date back to 1996, when the Howe Center for Business Writing was founded. This center is located on the third floor of FSB, room 3064.


Live Online Appointments are currently being offered to students who would prefer to meet with an HWC consultant virtually. These consultations take place in real-time via our online platform WCOnline.

We also offer written online appointments for Miami student writers who are taking online courses or who attend a regional campus. Schedule an appointment, upload your writing and other relevant documents, and during your appointment time an HWC consultant will read and respond to your draft. You'll receive written feedback (via Miami email) shortly after your appointment ends.
