Drop-In Consultations

A bit shorter in length than our appointments, Writers Workshop drop-in consultations last about 15-30 minutes and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Drop-ins begin at 4pm Sunday – Thursday. Writers are not able to sign-up more than 5 minutes before 4pm.

These sessions work best for short (1-3 page) documents or specific sections of a larger piece. They are also useful for specific questions (e.g., “Does this thesis make sense?” “Am I using APA in-text citation appropriately?” etc.). Coming with specific questions can help you make the most of your time! As with our appointment-based sessions, you don’t need to have anything written in advance.
