Writing Lab

Writing Lab

The LBJ School Writing Lab offers its students individualized assistance at any stage of the writing process and hosts a series of ongoing seminars on specialized policy-writing topics.

Writing Lab Hours

Appointments available Monday—Friday
7 a.m.—6 p.m.
In person, by Skype, or by email

What to expect during a consultation
Make an appointment to receive personalized feedback on your writing projects and career-search documents. If you send your document at least 24 hours in advance, you can expect a review of structure, content and use of language. Documents longer than five pages require more time. If available, please send the corresponding assignment prompt or job posting.

Can I just drop in?
You can drop by without an appointment between 8 a.m.—5 p.m. to ask questions about documentation, grammar, word choice conundrums and writing process best practices. If you need help getting started or revising a tricky paragraph, or simply want to brainstorm writing strategies, come on by! Call 512-471-3620 to make sure we're in the office.
