THIS SUMMER ALL WRITING CENTER APPOINTMENTS ARE TAKING PLACE ONLINE using Google Hangouts and Google Docs. You will be contacted prior to your appointment with directions.
SAIC Spring 2020 alumni: We're happy to continue working with you over the summer! If you're working on job application materials (including cover letter and resume development), grant applications, artist statements, or any other post-graduation writing needs, please make an appointment with us!
We serve all currently enrolled degree-seeking students.
If you would like to schedule an appointment with a specific tutor, one with a background or speciality that relates to what you are working on, take a look at the bios of our Writing Center Tutors & Staff. You can request to work with a specific tutor when you sign up for an appointment below. While some of our tutors list certain specialities, please note that ALL Writing Center Tutors are equipped to work with students on many different forms of writing and that everyone can help you with your writing goals!
IF YOU CAN'T MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT, CANCEL IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. To do so, log in to the schedule. Click on your time slot and then the pencil-and-paper icon. Finally, click "delete appointment." If you miss two appointments in any given term, you will be blocked from making additional appointments for the rest of that term.
If you're ten or more minutes late for your appointment, it will be offered to another student and counted as a no-show. If you make a last-minute cancellation--a cancellation made within twelve hours of your appointment--it will be counted as half of a no-show. Two last-minute cancellations = one no-show.
