Undergraduate Writing Consultations

Whether you just want to talk out your ideas, if you are feeling stuck, or if you have a specific question or dilemma, an individual consultation can provide great relief.

Success in college writing is primarily related to developing the depth, complexity, precision and persuasiveness of your writing.  There is no easy formula to follow.  This is why writing projects can be stressful.  It is also why talking over your writing with a thoughtful conversation partner can be such a powerful tool for development.

Our undergraduate consultants are successful writers themselves.  They have received faculty recommendations and have also taken a semester length course about productive writing processes and how to help others with their work.  They are friendly and relatable!

Our graduate level consultants are MA or PhD students. Many of them have significant experience teaching writing and are working on intense projects themselves.  They have a lot of expertise, but are also fun and easy to talk to.

We don't just do class essays!

We can also help you things like scholarship applications, personal statements, job letters and other really important pieces of writing.
