UVM Writing Center: Appointments

Make an Appointment with the Graduate Writing Center

Summer Break Appointments

Although the Graduate Writing Center is closed until Fall, four graduate writing consultants are available to meet by request. If you are enrolled in a UVM graduate program and would like to meet with a consultant, email one of the consultants listed below and let them know who you are, what program you are from, what you're working on, options for days and times to meet, and whether you would like an on-campus (Bailey-How ground floor) or Skype appointment. Please make your request 24 or more hours in advance for the best chance of success in making an appointment, and don't forget to check your email for a reply!

The Graduate Writing Center's online scheduling system will be back online during the first week of fall classes for appointments beginning in early September.

Meet the Consultants

The Graduate Writing Center is staffed by ten peer, graduate student writing consultants from a variety of disciplines. You can meet them here.

What to Expect When You Meet with a Graduate Writing Consultant

You will meet with your consultant for up to one hour. If you have a draft, bring it with you - but since it may not be possible for you and the consultant to discuss an entire draft in one hour, think too about which sections you'd most like to focus on. (If you are at work on a digital project such as a website or PowerPoint, bring a laptop or notebook, too.) If you don't yet have a draft, bring along any information - an assignment, Call for Papers, initial notes that can help you and your consultant get into a productive discussion to get you started. Most of all, be prepared to be involved. A consultant can't write or correct a paper but can help you take a next step - with a particular project and with perspectives and strategies that can apply to other writing situations too.

If you select Skype for your appointment (recommended only for graduate students who cannot make it to campus), your consultant will email you with further details on how to connect, so watch your UVM inbox for this important message!
