Types of Appointments

In order to best support the Clemson Family, the Writing Center -- soon to be renamed the "Clemson Writing Lab" -- has moved a majority of its support online for the Spring 2021 semester.

There are three ways for Clemson students to get feedback on their writing while online: synchronous online consultationsemailed feedback, and Zoom appointments. Below is a brief description of the services we offer. Limited face-to-face appointments will also be available after January 25.

If you already know which type of consultation you'd like, click on the button below to schedule an appointment through WCOnline, our appointment system. Information regarding each type of appointment can be found below or in the menu to the left. Please let your consultant know if you need an accommodation due to a disability.

Synchronous Online Consultations

Because many writers like real-time consultations, but have complicated schedules, we also offer online consultations. Through our online appointment platform, online consultations enable you to have a real-time conversation through an instant messaging system with a consultant about your writing--from anywhere you have internet. The consultations are better for content-based feedback. The platform does not support feedback on formatting. You may make three appointments per week. These appointments cannot be back-to-back.

Emailed Feedback

For those writers who learn best from written feedback and those that have busy professional schedules, we suggest sending your writing to us online and receiving emailed feedback. A Writing Fellow will read your paper, provide constructive feedback, and email you the paper when the appointment time concludes. Limit to 8 pages per session. You may make three appointments per week. These appointments cannot be back-to-back.

Zoom Appointments

Zoom appointments are video-based consultations which allow writers to engage with a consultant in real-time with video and audio. These appointments can be accessed anywhere you have stable high-speed internet. These appointments are limited and first-come/first-serve. You may make three appointments a week (subject to change). These appointments cannot be back to back.
