Writing Coaching

 

On-Campus Appointments

Great writers develop by discussing ideas and improving their writing together, and Residential Writing Services wants to help you succeed by working with you. Our peer coaches are highly trained to help you wherever you are in the writing process, regardless of your major. We offer one-on-one, in person appointments to current residential students. Online students should contact the Online Writing Center.

We use the LU Network scheduling system for appointments, which lets you schedule an appointment for a time and location that works best for you. So that we can provide you with the best service possible, we ask that you make your appointment at least 12 hours in advance. Students may only make one appointment per day.

  • Writing Coaching Appointments

    Request Appointment

    When making your appointment, you will be prompted with the question, “What is the purpose of your appointment?” In this field, enter your paper topic, paper length, and writing format. When you come to your appointment, bring an unmarked copy of your paper, any research you have conducted, and your professor’s instructions/rubric.

    Undergraduate Students: Appointments scheduled ahead of time will start at the top of the hour and can be up to 45 minutes in length. We will take walk-ins if coaches are available, but please be advised that we cannot guarantee you will see a coach for the full 45 minutes without a scheduled appointment. Appointments for class credit must be at least 20 minutes in length.

    Graduate Students: If possible, please email a copy of what you have written so far to graduatewriting@liberty.edu at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment. This early submission will help our coaches get a sense of your writing style and needs, especially for longer assignments. Appointments are all up to 1 hour in length. We are unable to accept walk-ins for graduate students.

    Please be advised that the Carter Building is not on Liberty University’s main campus. Carter is located at 701 Thomas Road and is not on any Liberty University bus routes.

  • Services for Professors

    Writing Services offers in-class presentations and other options to help orient your students in writing a paper, writing using specific formatting, and all our services. If you schedule a presentation with us, we'll send a trained presenter to your class in order to display a complete visual presentation and discuss the topic(s) of your choice.

    • Writing Services for Credit. Create a program with the writing center in which your students can earn regular or extra credit for visiting us. We keep records of every visit to Writing Services and will be able to report to you which students visited us at which times at any point throughout the semester.
    • Borrow-a-Coach. Request assistance with a peer review in your class. Coaches are able to assist individual students in the classroom with content, logical flow, grammatical concepts, format, paragraph unity, structure, and more.
    • Resource Request. Request a specific resource for us to build and put on our website.
    • Special Training Event. Request a custom workshop. We support departments and classes with specially-tailored workshops on writing, formatting, and more.
