Working with a Writing Consultant (Undergraduate Students)
Here are answers to questions undergraduate students typically ask about working with a writing consultant.
Q: My paper is due in an hour. Can you help me?
A: You will need time after your session to make changes to your draft. You can get the most out of your session by setting up your appointment in advance of your paper's due date. The amount of lead time you'll need will vary depending on the type of assignment and how much work you've already done, but usually the bare minimum is a day before the paper is due.
Q: Can you edit my paper for me?
A: We can help you learn to edit your work more efficiently, and we can help you find answers to your editing questions. You can't avoid the work of editing by coming to the Writing Center, but that work will probably be more pleasant with the company of a consultant!
