The heart of the WRC is the one-on-one consultation. Writers from all disciplines and levels are welcome to make an appointment with one of our trained peer consultants who can help at any stage of the process – from idea, to draft, to revision. You'll begin your free 50-minute consultation by identifying goals for the session. You may want to focus on:
- Developing a thesis
- Clarifying ideas
- Structuring an argument
- Strengthening specific paragraphs or sentences
- Designing and delivering a presentation
Once your goals are clear, you and the consultant will work together to explore possibilities. Although collaborative, at no time does the consultant take over authorship of your work. Many writers come in just to explore their ideas with an attentive, sympathetic audience.
