Graduate Writing Consultant

Ms. Wendy Campbell, MFA


The Writing Center provides writing consultation for any undergraduate assignment that includes a written component. We assist with essays, reports, literature reviews, group projects, etc. from any discipline. Though the majority of our sessions deal with drafts that have already been completed, you are welcome to stop by at any point in your writing process. We also can assist to help you get started, locate sources, establish a clear thesis, integrate research, cite your sources, and create a works cited.

Writing consultation sessions can be scheduled in advance online, in-person at the center, or by calling during our open hours. Walk-ins are accepted, but students with scheduled appointments are always given priority. When you arrive for a writing consultation, please bring your work along along with faculty directions regarding the assignment (an assignment sheet, an email or announcement, or instructions from Blackboard or the syllabus).


Three ways to get assistance with your writing assignments:

  • Email submission. You can email your paper and a copy of the assignment instructions to .
  • In-person appointments.
  • Virtual writing consultation appointments. You can speak with and share a document with a writing consultant through Bb Collaborate during regular Writing Center hours.Desktop computers are available for you in the Writing Center, or you can bring your laptop.
