Book a writing appointment to work through any part of a paper, report, article, presentation, or your thesis. We have experts in digital writing, technical writing, and writing for all disciplines.
Feeling stuck? We can help with brainstorming, planning, writing, and revising.
Book an appointment
Appointments are booked through our online scheduling system, WCONLINE. Plan ahead by booking your appointment today. You can book up to 4 weeks ahead.
Appointments as you need them
Book appointments when you need them. You can book a maximum of one per day and two per week.
Recurring appointments are perfect for writing projects like conference papers, thesis chapters, and journal articles, as well as for multilingual speakers. Write and revise in consultation with one of our writing and communication specialists.
To book a schedule of recurring appointments, just make a single appointment with an instructor and then speak to them about creating a future schedule where you work with the same instructor over several weeks.
Recurring appointments should be scheduled to give you time to work in between the meetings. We recommend weekly appointments wherever possible. Typically, our instructors will suggest weekly appointments over four weeks. Our instructors can help you plan by booking further in advance than what is otherwise permissible on the system.
It is best to arrange for a recurring appointment series early in the term. We will always hold spaces for students to book as-needed appointments, so we cannot always guarantee space for recurring appointments.
What should you know/bring?
Appointments are 50-minutes long, and are limited to one per day and two per week.
Because it is difficult to work from a screen, please bring printed copies of any notes or writing you’ve started. We cannot print pages here. We also cannot review your work outside of appointment times, so please do not email any material to your instructor.
Instructors will work with you on developing your skills for the long term. We don’t correct or change your work for you, but we can teach you the tools to revise and edit on your own.
Finding an appointment
Appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks ahead. Navigate the calendar by clicking on the week arrows (PREV WEEK or NEXT WEEK) or clicking on the calendar icon. To book an appointment, be sure to click the first white rectangle.
If you cannot find an appointment, add yourself to the waiting list. In the meantime, come to a drop-in location.
Change or cancel your appointment
Our system automatically sends reminder emails to you one or two days ahead of the appointment. If you need to change or cancel your appointment, you must make the change or cancellation on WCONLINE. Please do so at least three hours before the appointment or it will be considered a missed appointment. After three missed appointments, you will be locked out of the booking system.
Please arrive on time as we will give the appointment to another student after ten minutes. If you are running late, just call the front desk at 519-888-4567 ext.84410 to let us know.
