Spring 2023:

The Writing Center opens for the semester on Tuesday, 1/17. All meetings (except some for SPCS students) will occur in person in or near Boatwright Library 171A. Check the white board for your Consultant's location or ask if someone is working in that office when you arrive.

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

Please contact Administrative Coordinator 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.
  • Be patient. Normally, conferences should last 30-45 minutes. We will help everyone we can, on a first-come, first-served basis.
