Writers schedule appointments for one-on-one collaborative discussions about projects on which students are currently working. These interactions are intended to generate productive feedback and to improve writing and critical thinking abilities in general. Appointments can be made in advance by calling the Graduate Student Association (GSA) staff desk at 865-4211.
