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.

You are a creative writer looking for feedback on completed creative writing—a short story, a poem, a play, a novel chapter—or want to discuss ideas, and learn more about creative writing at King’s and beyond:

Make an appointment with the Creative Writing Consultant or the Creative Writing Assistant. Please do not book on this schedule for any other type of writing feedback.
