Monday to Thursday
10:00 am to 2:00 pmwith Mel Dennis

Check the LSCS Academic Calendar for official dates of closure.

What We Offer

  • Computers with MS Windows 7 and Office 10 (Word, PowerPoint, etc.)
  • One-on-one writing consultations of around 30 minutes in length
  • Quick assistance whenever a consultant is available
  • Dozens of reference handouts and books on writing and related topics

Our writing consultants do not take over or"fix"your work, but come alongside to help you be a better writer. Ourphilosophy centers on the process, not a product. We can, however, provide you with tips and techniques for brainstorming, finding a thesis, organizing, adding support,citing correctly,and other writing-related issues. In a writing consultation, the consultant will focus on your goals and use your writing to practice strategies for meeting these goals.

Please review our consultation form for more information on this process. We'd like you to prepare for each session by answering the "Questions for the Student" in part 1.
