Frequently Asked Questions

How do I schedule a consultation?

Both online and in-person consultations can be scheduled using the *Request a Consultation* tab. Sarah Keeney will respond to your request and schedule you with one of the available writing coaches. If you have specific needs or concerns, please indicate them on the form.

What should I bring to my in-person consultation?

If you are meeting with a coach in-person, it is best to bring two copies of your work, a copy of the assignment guidelines, and a few specific ideas about what you would like to accomplish. You can also e-mail your work to the coaches ahead of your consultation so that they can prepare constructive feedback before you arrive.

I submitted my paper for online review. When can I expect to receive feedback from the coaches?

The writing coaches attempt to reply to all online submissions in a timely matter, but response time may increase when the number of student submissions is high. Please indicate your deadline when requesting a consultation, and you will receive a response within 24 hours with a timeframe for feedback.  We work as quickly as possible!
