What Happens at a Writing Appointment?
Meet the Graduate Writing Consultants
Appointments are limited to one appointment per week, available on a first-come, first-serve basis. You may schedule an appointment up to two weeks in advance when it becomes available using our online reservation system, Handshake. Please consult our GWC policies page for more information concerning our policies.
What Happens at a Writing Consultation Appointment?
You will have 50 minutes to talk with the graduate writing consultant at your appointment. The writing consultant will ask you questions about your writing goals and concerns. Writing consultant may not be able to read your entire paper or project, so you should be ready to indicate which sections to focus on during your appointment. Come prepared to work actively on your writing because writing consultants will not do your work for you.
