How It Works

The Writing Center offers a variety of ways for students and members of the community to get feedback on their writing. Below is a brief description of the services we offer. If you already know which type of consultation you'd like, click on the buttons below to submit your writing for e-mail feedback or schedule a face-to-face or videoconference consultation. Please let your consultant know if you need an accommodation due to a disability.

Face-to-Face Consultations

The Writing Center offers a variety of locations and hours. Face-to-Face Consultations allow you to work closely with a trained writing consultant. Learn more about Face-to-Face Consultations.

Videoconference Consultations

Because many writers like face-to-face consultations but have complicated schedules, we also offer consultations via videoconference. Meet with Jay Hawkwriter (a.k.a. one of our Writing Center consultants) in a Google+ Hangout to converse about your work. Learn more about Videoconferencing with a Consultant.

E-mail Feedback

For those writers who learn best from written feedback, we suggest sending your writing to us online and receiving feedback via e-mail. We will respond to your online submission within 3 business days (M-F) when classes are in session. Learn more about E-mail Feedback.

On our minds lately: the idea that writing could be a telepathic connection between writer and reader. We’ve been musing on this since reading Elspeth Probyn’s “Writing Shame,” in which she invites us to think through Stephen King’s comments on writing. She notes that, “for King, the goal of writing is a telepathic connection between reader and writers, whereby the reader “catches” the writer’s interest. It’s what you’re trying to say to the reader, not how good you sound to yourself. It’s about recognizing what you’re trying to do to the reader and what writing does to the writer.” What do you think? (You’ll have to tell us; we’re not telepathic quite yet.) http://communicatingaffect.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/elspeth-probyn-writing-shame.pdf
