Writing Center Services

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

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 'Spring-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 Video Conferencing appointment: Select 'Spring 2021 - ONLINE Only'. Click on an available appointment time (white space) and select "Yes. Submit a Paper for Review." Be sure to attached your assignment instruction sheet in addition to your paper!

During your appointment:

You do not need to do anything during this type of appointment.

After you appointment:

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

We encourage our clients to schedule a Video Conferencing appointment or an In-Person appointment to discuss with their consultant any unclear comments of 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.
