Writing Support Services

Writing Support Services (WSS) provides free writing education to all SPH students. In addition to delivering mini-courses and workshops, WSS is available for in-person, online, and telephone writing consultations. During writing consultations, WSS works to meet students' needs and their instructors' expectations for a particular writing assignment. Overall, WSS assists students in many areas of writing to help them take responsibility for their own writing by providing them with writing advice, instruction, and support.

WSS is housed in the SPH Library & Graduate Communication Center (RAS E-109) in the main SPH building in Houston but serves all SPH campuses. To access writing resources designed for graduate students in the health sciences, visit the WSS LibGuide. To schedule a writing consultation, visit the WSS Appointment Service.
