Writing Assistance

Missouri State University students don’t just attend seated classes in Springfield…

By E-Mail: If you are enrolled at a satellite location, in an online class, or a dual-credit course, an e-mail writing consultant is an alternative way to obtain advice regarding your manuscript (e.g., a paper for a course, a thesis chapter, an article for a journal, a letter, an application essay, creative writing). Your paper may be in any stage of the writing process.

A writing consultant will read and give you an overview of the text's strengths and weaknesses.


Live using Adobe Connect: If you prefer an interactive consultation, the Internet Consultations functions much like an in-person appointment in the Writing Centerlike the Writing Center except the consultations are held using Adobe Connect®, instead of a sit-down meeting. You'll have an interactive, collaborative learning session with a consultant. During this session, your consultant will work with you to answer questions, encourage problem solving, and create a stronger piece of writing.This service is for those enrolled at a satellite location, in an online class, or a dual-credit course. Hours are limited.
