What happens during a writing session?

During a writing session, you will meet one-on-one with a Writing Coach who will help you gauge where you are in the writing process. It is always best to share your assignment rubric and a first draft if possible. You and your Writing Coach will then engage in a generative discussion about how you can elevate your writing to the next level.

Writing can be challenging, but we are here to help you develop your voice and grow as a writer!

Can I schedule a session even if I don't have a full draft completed?

Yes! There are many stages of writing from brainstorming, to outlining, to writing your first draft, then progressing to a final draft. Our Writing Coaches can support you through this process from beginning to end. We can also help you refine your research skills and assist with formatting citations.

When is the best time to make an appointment?

It’s never too early to schedule an appointment with a Writing Coach. Whether you are still brainstorming or just need your final draft proofread, we can help you in any stage of your writing process.

We offer 30 minute and 1 hour appointments and have availability during the day and evenings so that you can always schedule a time that works for you.
