Writing Center Services

The Writing Center offers three kinds of writing support: Video Conferencing, Submit a Paper for Review, and In-Person appointments.

In-Person Appointment

During your scheduled hour, you will work with a writing consultant to discuss, review and revise your paper.

To schedule an In-Person appointment: Select 'Fall 2021'. Click on an available appointment time (white space) and fill out your details. Meet your consultant at the Writing Center (Coe Library, Level 1).

During your appointment:

Based on your goals for the appointment, you and your consultant will review your work. Generally, your consultant will make sure the "big picture" (organization, paragraphs, thesis, intro, conclusion, etc.) of your paper is clear and articulated before moving to "sentence level" review (grammar, word choice, syntax, etc.).

After your appointment:

Within fifteen minutes of finishing your appointment, your tutor will send a report to your UW email (@uwyo.edu) with reminders of important comments and suggestions.

Video Conferencing

A video conferencing appointment allows you to work with an online consultant in real-time on your writing project. Interviews are conducted via webcam through our online scheduling system. If you are worried about your Internet connection, you can request to meet over Zoom or phone. 

To schedule a Video Conferencing appointment:

Select 'Fall-2021 - ONLINE ONLY'. Click on an available time (white space) and select "Yes. Schedule Video Conferencing Appointment." 5 minutes before your appointment, click on your appointment and select "Start or Join Online Consultation." This will load the video platform.

During your appointment: 

Together, you and an online tutor will work through the paper. You can either use the whiteboard to review and make changes to the text in real-time, or you and your tutor can review the writing on your own systems. 

After your appointment: 

Within fifteen minutes of finishing your appointment, your tutor will send a report to your UW email (@uwyo.edu) with reminders of important comments and suggestions, If relevant, the tutor can also attach a revised version of your paper in this same email. 

Submit a Paper for Review

When you schedule a Submit a Paper for Review appointment, you will submit your paper any time before the conference start time. During the scheduled hour, an online writing consultant will read your paper and prepare a list of comments and suggestions to help you revise your work. This is a good option if you do not want to meet with a consultant in real time. 

To schedule a Submit a Paper for Review appointment: Select 'Fall 2021". Click on an available appointment time (white space) and fill out your details. 

During your appointment: You do not have to do anything for this kind of appointment. 

After your appointment: Within fifteen minutes of the end time of your appointment, your tutor will send a report to your UW email (@uwyo.edu) with important comments and suggestions. 

 

Need to Cancel?

Please cancel your appointment by selecting your existing appointment, then selecting "Cancel Appointment." You can also email your consultant to cancel. Missing more than three appointments without cancellation will revoke your ability to schedule appointments for the remainder of the semester.
