Spring 2022: The Writing Center opens Tuesday, January 18. See the list of days and times available below. You may meet in person or via Zoom; please let the Consultant know your preference. In-person meetings happen in or near (see the white board nearby) Boatwright 171A.

All meetings are drop-in and first-come, first-helped. We aceept no requests for appointments in advance, though after you meet a Consultant, you may wish to see if the Consultant can meet you regularly.

Need to find a Consultant assigned to your class? The list can be found here.

Please contact Administrative Assistant Emily Ball or Director Joe Essid for more information.

SPCS students have the option of seeing our specialist Consultant, Emily Ball, who works directly with SPCS faculty. To meet with Ms. Ball, you can find out more here (UR login credentials required).

How to prepare, in person or online:

  • Have a copy of your assignment for the Consultant, and a draft you can share via Google Drive or as an e-mail attachment during the conference. We will not handle paper drafts in order to reduce the risk of COVID-19.
  • If meeting via Zoom, the Consultants will be trained to help you share your screen and resolve technical issues, but it's valuable to know in advance how to do these things, to make the most use of the conference time.
  • Be patient. Normally, conferences should last 30-45 minutes. We will help everyone we can, on a first-come, first-served basis.
