Face-to-Face Appointments

Overview

All writers benefit from invested readers who provide feedback, ask questions, serve as sounding boards, and offer motivation and encouragement throughout the writing process. The Clemson Writing Lab provides individual consultations with trained peer consultants who will coach and guide you as you write.

You can make appointments for consultations at any stage of the writing process--when you haven't yet started writing, are trying to polish a final draft, or are somewhere in-between. We ask that you make the suggested revisions before scheduling another appointment time. 

Our Face-to-Face Consultations take place in the Academic Success Center Room 307. 

We do not not offer line-by-line corrections. Consultants are educators, not editors.

  • Making A Face-to-Face Appointment
    To make an appointment, enter our appointment system by clicking one of the 'Make an Appointment' buttons on our website or go to https://clemson.mywconline.com.
    1. Within the appointment system, you will see a drop-down menu at the top of the webpage. Click on that menu to see the options.
    2. Select the current semester.
    3. Appointment boxes are color-coded. White boxes indicate available times. Purple and brown boxes indicate unavailable times. Select a white box at the time that best works with your schedule.
    4. Fill out the form detailing your assignment, where you are in the writing process, and what you would like to work on in that appointment.
    5. Attach your document to your appointment before the appointment start time. Documents should be in .doc or .docx format.
    6. Once you have completed this, click "Save Appointment."
  • Attending Your Face-to-Face Appointment

    If you scheduled a Face-to-Face appointment, verify the location of your appointment. Most appointments are held in the Academic Success Center (across from Watt) Room 307. 

  • Our Policies

    Repeat Appointments: We want to support you as a writer, and many other Clemson students are just like you. If you have an ongoing project you're working on, we suggest that you make future appointments with the same consultant after you have discussed your project and made revisions.  Keep in mind that others also need appointments. Students can make three appointments per week at this time. During times when appointments are limited, we may limit this to one appointment per week.

    Your Work: We want to support you in becoming a stronger and more effective writer. To do this, we need to work with you on your own writing. Please do not submit work for friends. Encourage them to make their own appointments with us. 

    Appointments can be made up until 10 minutes before an appointment start time.

    Late Arrivals: Please arrive on time for your appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your scheduled appointment, that appointment will be noted as a no-show and may be given to a walk-in.

    Cancellation Policy: We can help at any point in the writing process. This means that you do not need to cancel your appointment if you don’t have an entire draft completed! However, we understand that there are circumstances in which an appointment must be cancelled. You can cancel your appointment up until 45 minutes before your appointment start time. 

    Missed Appointments: If you miss more than three scheduled appointments, you will no longer be able to make Clemson Writing Lab appointments online.
  • Canceling Your Appointment

    Log into our appointment system and open your appointment. (Your appointment will be an orange box.) At the bottom of the pop-up window, you will see an option to cancel your appointment. You may also cancel by emailing us at writinglab@clemson.edu

    Please cancel your appointment at least 45 minutes in advance. If you have not canceled your appointment within this time frame, it will be considered a missed appointment.

    If you miss more than three scheduled appointments, you will no longer be able to make Clemson Writing Lab appointments online.
