Writing Coaching Undergraduate Writing Center

 

On-Campus Appointments

Great writers develop by discussing ideas and improving their writing together, and 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. 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.

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.

    Reserve Appointment

    Bring a printed, unmarked copy of your paper and the rubric for the assignment.

    Appointments scheduled ahead of time will start at the top of the hour and can be up to 45 minutes in length. We take walk-ins if coaches are available, but please be advised that we cannot guarantee you will see a coach for a full 45 minutes without a scheduled appointment. For this reason, we recommend making your appointment at least 12 hours in advance.

Writing Services offers in-class presentations and other options to help orient your students to 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.
