Preparing for Your
Writing Consultation

Writing consultants are on your team and want to help you become a better writer! Here’s what you can do to make the most of your consultation:

Ask Questions

  • Make a list of your questions and concerns and bring the list to your consultation.
  • During your consultation, ask questions until you understand a concept. We love questions!

Plan Ahead

  • Before attending, upload your paper to your appointment in our scheduler.
  • Plan on booking multiple consultations to review a longer paper (4-6+ pages, depending on genre). You can book three appointments per week; there is no limit using drop-in consulting.

Seek to Grow as a Writer

  • Understand that writing consultants will provide feedback and answer any questions you have, but they cannot edit your work. You are the ultimate owner of the paper.
  • Take the new skills you learned and apply them to unreviewed or future writing. For example, if you learned how to use a reverse outline, try making a reverse outline on the next paper you write. If you and your consultant addressed a comma splice, check the rest of your paper for comma splices as well.
  • For best results, revise based on the feedback you received in one consultation before attending your next consultation.

About the Writing Studio

The Writing Studio provides one-on-one writing consultations to all students at any stage of the writing process. You can work with a Writing Studio Consultant on any type of writing: course papers, scholarship essays, personal statements, other application documents, and more. In a consultation, you will learn revision strategies for developing your academic and professional writing skills.

All Writing Studio Consultants complete College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA) Level I Certification training during their first year of consulting, and we work hard to ensure that all consultants have the tools and resources to assist you to the best of their ability.

There is no cost to attend a Writing Studio consultation!
