Doc Drop Consulting

The Writing Center is happy to announce that we now have asynchronous writing consultations in the form of Doc Drop Consulting.

Document Drop Consulting allows students to submit their work online, which will be returned to them with feedback from one of our consultants. Students can upload a draft and a consultant will respond in writing within three to four business days.

Please note that consultants will spend up to one hour reading and responding to the work if it’s shorter than 10 pages. If it’s longer than 10 pages, we ask students to please indicate which sections the consultant should focus on.

As with other types of sessions we offer, our consultants will prioritize giving feedback on higher-order concerns (such as ideas, organization, and thesis statements) rather than sentence-level or grammatical concerns. However, consultants might offer feedback regarding patterns of grammatical errors if they impede understanding or hurt the writer’s credibility.

To submit your paper, go to the Writing Center Schedule and select Doc Drop from the drop down menu.

The RIDES Program
