Online Writers' Studio

Students have access to the Online Writers' Studio where consultants encourage writers to participate in revision-based writing. The Writers’ Studio's online services are available via our appointment software, SSC Campus. The Writers’ Studio offers online two online services: Email Writing Consultations and Online Chat Consultations.

Writers who select Email Writing Consultations will receive feedback via letter and short summative video sent through email 24-48 hours after the allotted appointment time.

Students who select Online Chat Consultations will enter a virtual meeting with the consultant via Microsoft Teams and will be able to discuss the assignment through video chat. After the session, the student will receive a recording of their appointment via email.

To submit a paper, students need to schedule an appointment with a consultant.
