Writing Support for the CSUSB Community
Writers work with consultants on writing projects of all kinds, including class assignments (essays, research papers, annotated bibliographies, lab reports, etc.), scholarship letters and applications, grad-school applications, creative writing projects, text messages, and even Kickstarter campaign pages! Whether you’re just beginning to figure out how to get started on an assignment, questioning whether you need to revise your thesis, or you’re ready to give your writing a final polish, wherever you are in your writing process, we’ll work with you to figure out how to move forward.
Scheduling a Writing Consultation
Most writers make 30-minute appointments to work with a consultant using our online scheduling app. Once you’ve signed up for an account, you can use the app to set up, adjust, or cancel your appointments anytime and anywhere you have an internet connection. Click through to the writing consultation page (on the left in the navigation bar) for more information on our writing consultations.
Check out our appointment-making tutorial below.
Walk-in Writing Consultations
We work with you on a walk-in basis whenever we can. In the last half of the term, particularly in fall and winter, we’re generally 100% booked with appointments, but we still take walk-ins whenever someone cancels or doesn’t show up. We allow 5 minutes after an appointment is scheduled to start before marking it as a no-show and taking a walk-in. In that case, your consultation will be 5 minutes short of the usual 30 minutes, but the 5 minute window helps us balance giving you some flexibility and making the most of the time we have available.
