History Writing Center

About Us

The History Writing Center, located in 347 James Blair Hall,  offers free consultations for students working on research and writing assignments for history courses. We work with students at all levels, from those new to writing about history to advanced students working on their honors theses.

The HWC is staffed by Ph.D. students from the department.  We have extensive experience in writing, researching, editing, and assessing all types of history papers.  We have all taught our own history courses at William & Mary, and have worked with undergraduate students in the History Department for years. 

Our center provides consultations for History Department writing assignments, or for courses cross-listed with History. If your paper does not meet these criteria, or if you are looking for ESL assistance, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with the Writing Resources Center at Swem Library.

Excellence in writing is hard work, but it is crucial to your success at William & Mary and in the future. We look forward to working with you.
