One-on-one consultations and resources

As a writer, you already know the benefits of including peer review in your writing process. The Writing Studio gives your students the same advantage. We are happy to work with students at all stages of the writing process by scheduling students for 30- or 60-minute, one-on-one consultations.

You can encourage your students to schedule appointments with us by including information about the Writing Studio in your syllabus (PDF). You can also show your students the resources available on our website.

Finally, you may email us to request a member of the Writing Studio staff to visit your class to talk to your students about our services.
