Mission and Mechanics

The Iliff Writing Lab offers assistance to any member of the Iliff community who wants to brush up on writing skills or who would like a consultant to check a particular assignment at any point in the process. We can talk through a plan before you begin a project.  We specialize in helping students who are new to the quirks of theological education or settling back into the world of academic writing.  The sort of writing required for the graduate degrees Iliff offers is not quite like anything else; we can help you figure it out.

We are open to all parts of the Iliff community, such as students, staff, and instructors. The lab specializes in structure and grammar issues in specific assignments or projects. There is a 10 page (double-spaced, 12pt font) per week page limit. Please limit yourself to no more than two appointments per week. We would love to help you improve your writing, but this is not a copy-editing service.

Please make an appointment if you want us to read your work. Send the work that you wish to be reviewed 24 hours in advance during the business week, Monday through Friday (the Writing Lab is not available and does not check email on the weekends; work to be reviewed on Monday must be submitted by Friday). Also send a copy of the assignment for which you are writing the work if applicable. Writing questions are also welcome on our Iliff Bloomfire community page or by emailing

Iliff engages in a collaborative effort with students with disabilities to reasonably accommodate student needs. We encourage students to contact their assigned advisor to initiate the process of requesting accommodations. The advising center can be contacted by e-mail ( or by phone (303) 765-1146.
