Who do we help?
Any UB writer -- undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and staff.
What do we do?
We can help with course essays, independent projects, personal statements and other application materials, theses and dissertations, articles for publication, emails…anything! If you compose it, we want to talk with you about it.
We also present topical workshops, visit classrooms, and host dissertation retreats and writing groups.
What should I do?
Make an appointment and try it out! Our appointments start at the top of the hour and each appointment lasts up to 45 minutes. If you have one, bring your assignment sheet. If you have a draft already, it is best to bring a hard copy. (We can work from laptops if need be, though.) If you don't already have a draft, that's fine too. We love to help with strategizing and brainstorming. When you come in, let us know how we can help. This is your paper, it's your process.
Here's a tip:
Come in early in your process! You might get some great revision ideas. Make sure you have time to enact them so you can submit your most developed work. Sometimes it's smart to come in during the brainstorming, planning stages to talk out your game plan for the project.
