Individual Writing Conferences
Professional Writing Instructors provide individual conferences for students working at any stage of the writing process. Writing instruction is available to all Smith students and any student currently enrolled in a class at Smith. Hours: Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Half-hour appointments can be made up to two weeks ahead of time ON-LINE: Register, make an appointment, and upload a draft well in advance to ensure a thorough reading. The longer the draft the earlier you should upload it. You may also make an appointment to brainstorm ideas and get started.
Because the demand for appointments increases as the semester progresses, you should plan ahead and sign up early. If you should have to cancel, do so ON-LINE no later than three hours before the appointment. Please be courteous: We often have a waiting list of students seeking appointments.
In the evenings, Peer Writing Tutors (students) perform a similar service, also at Seelye 307. No appointments necessary. Drop-in Hours: Sunday through Thursday, 7 p.m.–10 p.m. (Don’t show up at 9:45!)
