HOW TO GET FEEDBACK
Which kind of help is right for me?
All tutoring and consultations in Fall/Winter 2020-21 will be online. All appointments are 50 minutes long.
You are a BA, BMOS, or BSW student looking for feedback on assignments, or peer help with brainstorming, résumés, cover letters, applications, personal statements, or simple academic writing questions
Make an appointment with a Write Place Tutor/Consultant, or use Online Drop-in. Online drop-in is only available if pre-booked appointments have not filled the open slots.
You are an MSW student, or you are looking for more advanced help with complex issues, long-term writing improvement, or grammar and sentence structure.
Make an appointment with a Writing Specialist (a professor who will do teaching + feedback), or use Online Drop-in. Online drop-in is only available if pre-booked appointments have not filled the slots.
