Feedback by email and Skype

Are you off campus this summer? Are you working on academic writing or on application essays? We have two great options:

  • You can upload a draft of 6 pages or fewer and receive emailed feedback from one of our team of expert writing instructors. We will respond in fewer than 3 business days, or let you know if we cannot.
    Email instruction is now closed for the summer term. We will see you again in the fall!
  • You can work with an instructor over Skype by calling our friendly receptionists at 608-263-1992 and asking to schedule an appointment with an instructor who is available to work with you through a video call.

Please note that the Writing Center's summer business days are Monday through Thursday.
