Making appointments with Writing Faculty
To meet with Writing Faculty, you'll want to plan ahead when possible and schedule appointments with us via our computer based scheduling system, AccuTrack. The student workers or faculty or staff in the Center for Teaching, Learning and Research (CTLR) can show you how to do this, or you can use the online link at the Writing Center website Scheduling usually happens a few days in advance, but sometimes students find last minute openings. Some students schedule weeks ahead to ensure that they get the help they need on a particular paper.
If we have no openings in AccuTrack that fit your schedule, feel free to email Catharine Wright (firstname.lastname@example.org), Shawna Shapiro (email@example.com) or Mary Ellen Bertolini (firstname.lastname@example.org) to inquire about alternate times. Sometimes we can create alternate times and/or accommodate last minute requests. You may try one or all of us. Shawna Shapiro is our multilingual specialist, but all of our writing faculty can give you feedback on a paper for any class.
If we are unable to meet with you on a particular paper due to scheduling/time constraints, we urge you to work with a Peer Writing Tutor during their drop-in hours in the CTLR from 7:30 p.m.- midnight, Sunday-Thursday evenings. We also have Brainerd and Cook Commons Peer Writing Tutors holding drop in hours two nights a week (see below). It is very acceptable to meet with two different tutors, at different stages in the writing process, on the same paper (professional then peer, peer then peer, peer then professional).
* Ross: Ross Commons lounge (in the basement of LaForce) on Thursdays 9:00-10:00 PM, and Sundays 9:00-11:00 PM
* Brainerd:Brainerd Conference Room Thursdays 8:00-10:00 PM and Sundays 8:00 PM-midnight
