Individual In-Person and Online Appointments

The Graduate Writing Center offers individual appointments both in person (masks appreciated) in our Howe Library suite and online via Teams. For an in-person appointment, your consultant will meet you at the UVM Writing Centers reception desk on the ground floor of Howe Library. For online appointments, your consultant will call you on Teams at the appointment time.

Group Online Appointments

If you are part of a writing team, have one team member make the appointment and make sure all team members have registered with WCOnline. Include their names and netids on the appointment form. Your consultant will set up a Teams meeting and send out invitations to your group.

Review & Meet Appointments

If you have a long or technical draft of up to 20 pages, you can make a two-part Review and Meet appointment with the same consultant (in-person or online). Mark the first appointment Review and upload or link your draft. You won’t attend this appointment. Instead, your consultant will spend the hour getting familiar with your project. Mark the second appointment Meet. This is when you will meet your consultant (in person or online), ready to launch into discussion.

Graduate Writing Retreats

Our weekly graduate writing retreats offer you extended time for independent writing in the company of other graduate students and with the option of meeting with a consultant anytime during the retreat. Fall 2022 Writing Retreats are held on Sundays, 3-5 pm. Register through our appointment calendar.

Email Feedback Letter Appointment

If you can't meet in real time, choose Email Feedback Letter Appointment. Your consultant will read and respond to your draft within 24 hours after your appointment. Attach your draft of up to 12 pages with a detailed note about your project, stage of writing, and goals and concerns. When your feedback is ready, you'll receive an email. Consultants will not copy-edit your work, but they will provide a supportive and knowledgeable outside perspective on your project, a read on what is and is not yet working for your aims, and advice for your next steps.
