What to Expect or not Expect in the Writing/Reading Lab

What should you expect from the Writing/Reading Lab?

  • individual assistance on the writing issues that concern you
  • helpful, courteous, and competent assistance
  • support for writers at all levels of experience and at any stage in the writing process
  • improvement in your overall writing ability after repeat visits

What shouldn't you expect from the Writing/Reading Lab?

  • an editing service where we do all the work while you sit back and watch
    We strive to help you learn to help yourself!
  • a perfect paper
    Fifty minutes is often not enough time to address everything. Repeat visits may be necessary to polish your writing. The real goal of the Writing/Reading Lab is to help you become a better writer, not just to perfect a particular paper.
  • flawless writing assistants who know all the answers
    But what we don't know, we'll try to find out!
  • answers to all your writing questions in just one or two sessions
    Becoming a better writer is a process that happens gradually.

What else should you know?

  • Bring a specific writing task to work on along with any ideas, notes, drafts, your writing assignment, and any other relevant materials.  As much as possible, complete your research before seeking help with research papers.  if you need help conducting your research, please speak with a librarian or ask us to put you in contact with library faculty.
  • Be prepared to take an active role in your sessions. Let the tutor know what concerns you most and what you'd like to focus on.
  • Plan ahead. Schedule appointments in advance in order to be guaranteed assistance(especially during the final few weeks of the semester).
  • Contact the Writing/Reading Lab if you are running late or if you need to cancel your appointment.  If you are ten or more minutes late for your appointment, you run the risk of losing that time slot.
