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 use our online scheduling app to make 30-minute or 1-hour appointments to work with a consultant. You can also call, connect with us via Zoom, or come in person to set up an appointment. 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 internet access. Click through to the writing consultation page for more information on our writing consultations.

Walk-in Writing Consultations

We work with you on a walk-in basis whenever we can. During midterms and nearer the end of the term, we can get 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 or 1 hour, but the 5 minute window helps us balance giving you some flexibility and making the most of the time we have available.
