You can request a one-on-one writing appointment by using this link below. 

  • Appointments are 30 minutes each (you may select multiple options for your appointment time)
  • The appointment will address a single written draft of an assignment; you must submit a draft of your assignment when you request the appointment.
  • You can also submit instructions from your professor if applicable

Appointment Expectations

  • The Writing Center does not make any guarantees about the grade you will receive on an assignment. Our goal is to assist your growth as a researcher and writer.
  • The Writing Center is not an editing or proofreading service. You will learn to apply techniques and address issues of organization, style and/or grammar for yourself during the session.
  • You should come ready to discuss your assignment and areas of improvement. Your active participation in the writing process is expected at all times.
  • Avoid scheduling an appointment the day before the assignment is due. We do not provide quick fixes or last-minute tips and tricks.
  • You may not book more than two sessions per week.

How to prepare for an appointment

  • Know what point you have reached in the writing process. Are you still in the research/literature review phase? Have you written a rough draft? Are you building an outline? We can help with any part of the process, but you should be able to make sense of where you are and where you need to go next in the process.
  •  Have something written down for us to review. If you’re at square one, you should probably talk to your professor before you talk to us.
  • Prepare specific questions. We can’t review everything in a paper. If you know what you want to improve, ask us about it!
  • Be present. That means be on time. It also means that your improvement as a writer will be directly tied to the attention you give during a session. So avoid distractions and take notes.

Resources and Guides:

The Writing Center is in the process of creating resources and guides for students to use when engaging in the research and writing process. Those resources will be posted as they become available.
