How Appointments Work

Face-to-Face Appointments

All three sites offer 45-minute writing consultations by appointment or on a walk-in basis, beginning on the hour. If you are more than 10 minutes late for your scheduled appointment, and have not been in touch by email or phone, you will be marked as a "no-show" so that your session may be given to someone else. 

Online Appointments

Online appointments function similarly to face-to-face appointments but with interactions conducted through text chat. You will log into the online appointment software (click on your appointment in the calendar and click "join online appointment") and you and your consultant will be able to chat in real time and view a shared document. Please have any writing ready to upload in case you'd like to share it with your consultant. Please do not upload a document in advance of your online session.

ETutor Appointments

Asynchronous online appointments, or ETutors, are only available to DKU students, athletes on the road, or other students traveling on Duke business. 

TWP Writing Studio Appointment Policies

Due to our desire to serve as many students as possible, the TWP Writing Studio limits the number of appointments writers can have on the same piece of writing. 

Studio consultants will usually only work with you three times per piece of writing. If you feel you need more than three visits for a particular document, please talk to your writing consultant to generate an appropriate plan. 

Dissertating writers are welcome to visit more than three times for the dissertation as a whole. You and your consultant will make a plan for the number of appointments that are appropriate for each section or chapter.
