Even if you are just getting started on a writing assignment, the Write Site can help.
The Write Site is open Monday-Thursday 9:30am-4:30pm and Friday 9:30am-12:30pm. Please visit https://mnstate.mywconline.com/ to schedule an appointment. Walk-in appointments are also offered on a first-come/first-served basis during the Write Site hours and during evening hours on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 8pm-10pm. However, walk-in clients must complete the online registration prior to their appointments. They may do this using one of the Write Site computers.
Your consultant is a resource to help you improve your writing skills. He or she will offer you constructive feedback on your assignment and suggestions for improvement. Your consultant will not evaluate your paper on a grade scale or write the paper for you. He or she will not be a proofreader or copyeditor. This is your paper. You cannot drop off your paper; you must be present for the tutorial, either in person or online.
You can schedule an online consultation with a Write Site tutor when you make your appointment. If your computer is equipped with a microphone and a webcam, you will be able to speak to and see your writing consultant. If your computer does not have a microphone and/or a webcam, no worry - you will be able to discuss your paper in a chat box. Your paper, of course, must be on the computer you are using for the consultation so it may be viewed by your writing consultant.
Because the Write Site offers online consultations, we can no longer accept email submissions of papers. All consultations will take place either in person or in a synchronous online session.
Though online consultations are available, research shows that the very nature of online work makes it less efficient and somewhat more difficult than face-to-face consultations. Therefore, we recommend that you schedule an in-person session whenever possible.
Along with tutoring help and guidance on your paper or writing assignments for any major, the Write Site offers many other services.
