Before Your Consultation

Make an appointment as early in the writing process as you can. Before arriving for your appointment, make sure you have the assignment sheet and any other supporting materials such as grading criteria, grading rubric, previous drafts with instructor comments, etc. Also, bring any questions you may have about those drafts. The more information you bring to your consultant, the more successful your session will be.

If you are having difficulty getting started, we can help you brainstorm and gather ideas. We work with you in all stages of the writing process: prewriting, drafting, revision, presentation. You stay in control of your paper by arriving to the consultation with specific questions or concerns and being prepared to think critically about your writing.
