Individual writing tutorial appointments (up to 50-minute sessions) are available to any MU student for any writing project, including all course-related assignments, personal statements, cover letters, scholarship essays, creative writing pieces, or pretty much anything else you can think of that might need sentences.
All appointments are free and completely confidential.
During your appointment, your tutor will work with you at whatever stage of the project you’re in, from the assignment sheet stage to final revisions.
You can make appointments online via the Online Writery, from your internet-connected device of choice. If you have questions, the easiest way to reach us is via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
While semester-based classes are in session, we will offer synchronous face-to-face appointments on campus and online sessions via Zoom. You can see the available appointments by selecting “Schedule an Appointment” from the MyWritery tab (click that Make An Appointment button above to go to the Online Writery). You’ll receive your particular appointment meeting information, including a Zoom link if applicable, in the scheduling email. If you make your appointment at least a day in advance, you’ll also receive a reminder email the morning of your appointment.
The morning after you attend your appointment, you’ll receive a third email as proof of attendance.
Please pay careful attention to the Location in bold in those emails. Our physical sites cannot be switched to Zoom meetings.
At this time, our current locations are:
- First Floor of the Student Success Center
- Information Commons in Ellis Library
- Student Lounge in Mark Twain residence hall
If you have a Zoom meeting, tutors will meet with you via Zoom and will expect you to share your screen (ideally both the assignment sheet and your project) so that you can read it together.
As always, we continue to respond (asynchronously) to your submissions via the Online Writery as well!
Writing Intensive (WI) Appointments
If you’re enrolled in a WI course, you also have access to all of our Writing Fellows for your appointments. These are graduate students from various disciplines across campus, usually familiar with the assignments and expectations of your course. When making an appointment for any WI courses, you’ll usually be routed to one of these tutors.
