What to Bring

Bring to your appointment:

  • Any writing you've done
  • Your assignment sheet
  • Your textbook
  • Pens or pencils
  • Questions you have

Your active involvement is crucial to your conference's success. We'll help you figure out what to do by asking you to take charge of your writing--never by doing the writing for you.

We can help you:

  • search for topics,
  • summarize the reading,
  • get a draft started,
  • find a method of organization,
  • develop clear examples to support your points,
  • establish a main point or central idea,
  • revise an early draft,
  • reconsider the direction of your writing,
  • cite and document your sources,
  • eliminate errors from your writing
