     What to Expect at your Writing Center Appointment

  • GSU Regional Online Writing Center


    You may send your paper online for revision suggestions or just ask a question about writing. A writing center consultant will respond within 24 hours, 7 days a week. The consultant will suggest revisions for the most significant concerns in your paper and send it back so you can edit, proofread, and revise it. After twenty-four hours, once you have revised the paper, you may send it back for another consultation if you wish. 

    *Please note that the Writing Center will do its best to respond to you within 24-hours of your submission, but responses cannot be guaranteed within that time frame during the summer term, Thanksgiving weekend, or winter break. Also, the Writing Center strongly advises students not to submit a paper for an online consultation less than twenty-four hours before it is due.
