Writing Consultations

 

The WCH provides one-to-one consultations for students at every stage of their assignment preparation process (from gathering ideas to revising a draft), and offers help with any aspect of their writing and oral presentations (from specific assignments to general writing and communication skills). The WCH is staffed by tutors who provide these consultations at no charge to the student.

 

How to prepare for the WCH consultation:
- Tutors do not proofread nor edit papers.They work with you on higher-order concerns to increase the quality of the work as   a whole.
- You help set the agenda for the conference.The consultant needs to know what you are trying to accomplish, what you have   trouble with, etc.
- You will think, write and talk about how you write. You will also discuss the writing process in general.
- Our aim is two-fold: to help you with your concerns about the paper at hand and to suggest to you something new about the   craft of writing.

 

What to expect from the WCH consultation:
- Bring two copies of your paper if you are working on a draft, one for you and one for the consultant.
- Bring the assignment sheet if you are working on a particular course assignment. This will help the tutor provide good   feedback.
- Bring a copy of your instructor’s comments if you want to discuss how to include feedback you already received on the   assignment.
- If you have notes, previous writing, a particular text, and/or research materials related to your draft, bring them to the   appointment.
