Peer Writing Assistance
One-on-one writing assistance is offered to writers in any course and at any phase of the writing process. Students can reserve a conference or drop in during open hours. Walk-in clients will be welcomed as time permits on a first-come, first-served basis.
All conferences are held Sunday-Thursday nights, 6-10p.m., in the Baldwin Center for Learning and Teaching on the first floor of H-L Library, or optionally online, if needed.
Tips on How to Have a Successful Conference
- Schedule your appointment with a writing assistant a day or two before the paper is due.
- Bring a copy of the assignment with you.
- Bring a draft, outline or list of ideas.
- Take charge! Come to the conference with an idea of what you want to work on.
Writing conferences are run by students for students... so take advantage of this unique opportunity to get some helpful feedback from your peers!
