How does a response session work?
A response session is a free, one-on-one, 50-minute or 2-hour conversation with a professional Responder who responds to writing at any stage (brainstorming, drafts, and revisions). If you bring writing to a session, the Responder will ask you to read it aloud as a way to begin the conversation.
What type of writing can I bring to a session?
Responders give thoughtful responses to any type of writing (academic coursework, creative writing, resumes and personal statements, applications, grants, professional scholarship, and more!).
Will Responders proofread or edit my writing?
As part of the conversation, Responders will make suggestions that writers may find useful, but we believe that writers must keep ownership of their writing that reflects the specific decisions they make as writers. Although Responders will not attempt to physically change the writing by personally proofreading or "correcting" it, they will suggest proofreading and revision strategies and resources that writers can use to change the writing for themselves.
When are appointments available?
We're here on weekdays throughout the school year. Appointments can fill up fast, so make sure you schedule in advance.
