MSU Denver

Online Writing Consultations

We offer online writing consultations to all MSU Denver students. Our online tutoring platform allows synchronous sessions where the consultant and client meet in real time to work together on a piece of writing. Students may upload a paper beforehand, but the sessions mirror our in-person appointments in that consultants will look at the paper together with the client at the appointment time.

Online writing consultation offers convenient evening and weekend hours designed to help students who may not be on campus regularly and may need appointment times outside our in-person hours.

The online platform gives you the opportunity to be you in a session!  At your house, in your jammies, petting your dog, or watching your kids play, you can become a better writer in one of the most comfortable ways we offer!

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 means students can submit their work which will then be returned to them with some 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 (for example, ideas, organization, and thesis statements) rather than sentence-level or grammatical concerns. Consultants might offer feedback regarding patterns of grammatical errors, however, if they impede understanding or hurt the writer’s credibility.

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