     What to Expect at your Writing Center Appointment

  • GSU Regional Online Writing Center


    You may send your paper on-line for revision suggestions or just ask a question about writing. A writing center consultant will respond within 24 hours, 7 days a week. A writing consultant will suggest revisions for the top two or three problems with your paper and send it back to you to revise. You can make the changes and send the paper back again if you want. 

    *Please note that we will do our best to respond to you within 24-hours of your submission, but responses cannot be guaranteed within that time frame during the summer term. We apologize for any inconvenience, but invite you to check for updates regarding the fall term when we hope to reinstate our 24-hour guarantee.
