Individual or Group Appointments

Appointments book up quickly. Please book your appointment a minimum of two weeks in advance.

Students are welcome to make appointments for individual or group assistance with Writing Skills staff members. Appointments are 60 minutes in length, and students are restricted to no more than one (1) appointment per week. Students are encouraged to bring papers at any stage of the writing process, and it is useful to bring assignment instructions provided by professors. For assistance with group assignments Writing Skills staff members will only discuss those sections of the assignment written by group members who are present.

To make a Writing Skills appointment go to the Writing Skills home page and use the Schedule an Appointment button for either Specialist, or call 204-727-9737.
