Writing Consultations


Writing consultations are a great opportunity for you to receive one-on-one support at all stages of the writing process. Here’s what to expect from your consultation:

  • Sessions  run 30-60 minutes, depending upon the length of the assignment. For longer assignments (capstones, thesis projects, etc.), we recommend making multiple appointments.
  • Plan to send a draft the day before your appointment, or at least no later than the morning of the appointment. Please also send any information about the assignment that will help us as we read.
  • Because of limited time allotments, we may not be able to review the entirety of your paper in a single session.
  • Come prepared with specific questions and potential problem areas to address.
  • Be sure to bring two hard copies of your draft – one for you, and one for the consultant – as well as something to write with.
  • A writing consultant is a knowledgeable reader, not an editor. Rather than fixing your mistakes, your consultant will work with you to identify possible areas for revision and editing, as well as strategies for improvement.
  • Due to high demand of our services, the Student Writing Center can generally only review any given assignment once. Plan accordingly to make the most of your session.
