Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Writing Consultations

The GWL is now open for writing consultations. For the time being, all consultations are being held online. As Yale eases restrictions on masking and indoor gatherings, the GWL will transition to offering in-person consultations—with online consultations available as well.

Individual Writing Consultations are appointments with Graduate Writing Consultants who meet with you in person or online to discuss a writing project you are currently working on, whether you have a polished draft or only a basic outline of notes. Consultations help writers experience an objective and constructive analysis of their work, relieve writing-related anxiety and overcome obstacles in the writing process. Consultants will help you bolster the strengths and combat the weaknesses in your writing. Consultations are free of charge with no limit on the number of appointments you can make per semester.

Please note: if you’d like to discuss your Turnitin similarity report, please schedule a regular consultation and notify us in the appointment form.
