The Graduate Writing Center

Our Mission

The Shippensburg University Graduate Writing Center is committed to empowering graduate students as they become effective and confident communicators. We foster these skills through collaborative, conversational writing consultations, by providing an array of writing resources, and by promoting graduate writers’ scholarship.

Consultation Information

We are currently offering two types of consultations. You have the option of scheduling a synchronous or asynchronous consultation:

  • Synchronous consultations occur in real-time via ZOOM Video Conferencing. To use this option, you must have internet access and a computer equipped with a microphone and camera. You will also need to send your paper, assignment description, and other relevant information to your consultant AT LEAST 1 hour before your appointment time. Instructions for ZOOM Video Conferencing are available here.
  • Asynchronous consultations do not require you to use ZOOM. As with a synchronous appointment, you will need to send your paper, assignment description, and other relevant information to your consultant AT LEAST 1 hour before your appointment time. Within 24 hours, your consultant will return your draft with written comments and send a screencast video to explain feedback and next steps. 

Schedule A Writing Consultation

Use the platform below to schedule your consultation, but keep in mind the following:

  • If you wish to schedule with a specific consultant, please scroll past the platform below and can click the scheduling link in that consultant's bio.
  • Please limit your consultations to no more than 2 total sessions per week and 1 session per day.
