  • Writing Consultation: Writing consultants are available to assist with any writing project, at any stage, for any level of writer.  Whether your project is for an English class or any other major, we’re here to help. Bring the assignment sheet or instructor directions, and we can assist with brainstorming, outlining, draft feedback, as well as editing, revision, and final polishing.
  • Reading Consultation: Reading academic texts require very different skill sets than reading fiction. Let our consultants share tips, techniques, and skills to make those texts easier to understand.
  • Drop In: Though we recommend scheduling appointments ahead of time, the CRW does also offer Drop In services. If a consultant is available, s/he can sit down with clients for brief sessions. The busiest times are typically the week before and including midterms and finals, so please plan ahead.
  • Speech Preparation: Have a speech you need to practice? CRW consultants can assist with outlining, note cards, and even practice. Let us be your audience and provide you with tips and techniques to prepare you.

The CRW maintains an active Blackboard Community page for BOTH students and instructors! Find citation guides and many other instructional materials in Blackboard!
