Tuesday Tip: Get in a Group

The Writing Center is starting to put together some writing groups for graduate students writing theses and dissertations as well as students writing undergraduate theses. We are currently recruiting participants as well as group facilitators.

So what are these writing groups all about? Well, we want to provide students working on long-form writing projects with a support network. Groups will each have a trained facilitator that will help the group stay focused, stay positive, and stay productive. We will provide you with a space for your group to write. We will even give you snacks and coffee!

Want to join a group (and maybe even facilitate)? Sign up here: http://bit.ly/2yxoHfO



Tuesday Tip: Waiting List

If you have stopped by this week hoping for a walk-in appointment, then you know that the center is busy!

A great feature of our website is the waiting list. To add yourself to the waiting list, find the clock icon underneath the date.






From there, go ahead and join the waitlist.

You will get an email letting you know when an open appointment becomes available. There might be a few folks on the waiting list for that day, so if you get notified, make sure to log in and sign up!

If you have any questions, you can always email us at writingcenter@wfu.edu.

Tuesday Tip: Next Steps

We offer 50 minute writing consultations where you meet with a peer tutor. You drive the session! The tutor will ask lots of questions to make sure your questions are answered and issues are addressed. You can make an appointment for any writing assignment at any point in the writing process!

Want to make an appointment? Log in and look for an available appointment (one of the white spots). When you sign up, your appointment will appear green.

You can go in anytime and change or cancel your appointment.

Now that you know, go (and sign up for an appointment)!
