If you are unable to come to the Learning Commons in person, you can
submit a piece of writing for an online consultation.
A writing consultant will read over your work, provide feedback, and send the document back to you within 48 hours. This is different than a virtual session, where you would video chat with a writing consultant.
This service is NOT available on weekends, holidays, or during University breaks.
An online session functions in place of an in-person consultation; each session lasts for 50 minutes, like an in-person appointment. Students with essays longer than 6-8 pages are strongly encouraged to schedule an in-person appointment to discuss their writing. Longer essays may call for multiple online appointments, and writers should allow for a 72-hour response time. Additionally, we reserve the right to decline an online consultation in favor of an in-person session if it suits the learning process of the student writer.
