To prepare for your drop-in writing consultation:

  • Come to the Writing Center on the main floor of McCartney Library during the established Drop-In Hours. Please remember your mask and maintain a six-foot distance from others.
  • Have the document you wish to review saved in the cloud and ready to access when the consultation begins.
  • You and the Peer Writing Consultant will look at your document together in Teams when you share your screen.
  • Remember! You can borrow a Chromebook from the McCartney Library Circulation Desk if you do not have a laptop to use for your writing consultation.

Tutors will help you with any aspect of your writing, including:

  • Understanding an assignment
  • Brainstorming ideas
  • Organizing thoughts
  • Writing paragraphs
  • Crafting sentences
  • Formatting a paper
