What happens during a Write Place consultation?

At the beginning of the session, the Write Place associate will ask you about your assignment and your goals for the appointment. You can expect to focus on two or three areas of concern during your visit. These areas might include grammar, mechanics, organization, structure, idea development, argument support, etc. To get the most out of your session, be sure to bring the writing prompt or assignment with you.

What doesn’t happen during a Write Place consultation?

We don’t offer quick fixes. Instead, we focus on long-term improvement. We also don’t proofread entire papers. We leave that up to you. But we’re happy to help you polish your proofreading skills. Just ask!

Should I wait to come in until I have a finished draft?

No! We welcome you to visit the Write Place at any point in the writing process.
