Writing Consultation Appointments

The Graduate Writing Lab offers friendly, experienced, and FREE writing consultation appointments to all registered (financially enrolled) CAU graduate and professional students. You will have the opportunity to meet with a graduate writing consultant to work on writing issues ranging from style and argumentation to grammar and syntax. Please keep in mind that the consultation appointments are interactive sessions, not proofreading sessions. The goal of the writing consultation is to increase your skill level, confidence and independence as a writer.

Scheduling an Appointment

Appointments are limited to one appointment per week, available on a first-come, first-serve basis. You may schedule an appointment up to two weeks in advance when it becomes available by clicking the link below.

In preparation for your appointment, please review our GWL policies page and our GWL Consultants’ Guideline. Also, please complete the following appointment form and return it via email to 2 days prior to your scheduled appointment. It is also your responsibility to bring a printout of your writing project to the appointment.

During My Writing Consultation Appointment

Based on the information provided on your appointment form, the writing consultant will ask you questions about your writing goals and concerns. You will have 1 hour to talk with the graduate writing consultant at your appointment. Writing consultant may not be able to read your entire paper or project, so you should be ready to indicate which sections to focus on during your appointment. Writing consultants will not do your work for you, so please come prepared to work actively on your writing.
