a consulting appointment

Trained undergraduate communication consultants will assist you at any stage of your composing process, from brainstorming and organizing your ideas to polishing your final draft. We do not proofread or “fix” papers for you, nor do we create or edit media projects for you, but we will help you learn how to proofread, evaluate, and improve the effectiveness of your own work, whether it is a website, oral presentation, essay, or lab report.

All forms of writing are welcome: WMC consultants are also happy to work with you on cover letters, resumes, scholarship essays, and graduate school personal statements.

Are you an instructor who would like to request an outreach presentation?  Please fill out our presentation request form.


The Writing & Media Center is open for the Fall.
