We offer a peer consultation service that is free of charge for students. Peer consultants can help students with a wide array of writing - everything from English to economics, from music to science, from engineering to business. The Writing Studio's services are available to all students at all levels, from undergraduate to graduate. Consultants at the Writing Studio help students improve both their papers and their ability as writers by focusing on the organization and content of ideas within the paper over the less immediate details of grammar, mechanics, and spelling.
Writing consultants primarily work with writers face-to-face. In order to meet with a Writing Studio consultant, you can walk in or make an appointment by calling (816)235-1146. Consultations last 20 - 50 minutes. Consultants will work with you at any point in the writing process, so bring your assignment sheet, the assignment rubric, and/or your fifth draft. The assignment sheet is highly useful.
