Yes. The Writing Studio prioritizes support for Duke undergraduate student writers and graduate student writers admitted through the Graduate School. Please limit yourself to scheduling one appointment per week and come for any additional appointments on a walk-in basis. If you're a student in one of the professional schools, please wait until the day of your desired appointment to walk-in for a consultation.
Click on "Schedule An Appointment" on the TWP Writing Studio home page, and then click on "Face-to-Face Appointment." Follow the step-by-step directions.
Undergraduate students may schedule two appointments per seven-day period. Graduate students may schedule one appointment per seven-day period. Both undergraduate and graduate students may have additional walk-in appointments regardless of how many appointments they have scheduled.
Click on "Schedule An Appointment" on the TWP Writing Studio home page, and then click on "Show/Cancel My Appointments." Check the "Cancel" box next to the appointment you wish to cancel.
Unfortunately not, but we will be happy to work with you on a walk-in basis if there is space available. Our daytime, East Campus location in Bivins 107 is the most likely place to find a free consultant for a walk-in appointment.
During the hours the TWP Writing Studio is open, we will typically be busy meeting with students and often unable to give you an immediate response. We suggest you first try finding an answer to your question on one of the links listed on the "Resources for Writers" site on our Studio web page. If you are unable to find what you need there, you are welcome to call the Studio at 919-684-4213. If no one is available to answer the phone, please leave a specific message and someone will try to get back to you as soon as possible. You can also e-mail the Studio at email@example.com.
For take-home exams, some instructors specify whether you may or may not bring your work to the TWP Writing Studio. If you have any questions about whether it is appropriate to get feedback from the TWP Writing Studio on take-home exams, ask your instructor before you bring in your paper. Since your instructor will know from the conference summary that you have been here, it is your responsibility to determine whether your instructor would approve that you have discussed your exam with a consultant.
Here you will find a handout including helpful information about freelance editors and the contact information of freelance editors that have worked with grad students in the past.
Please e-mail us with any suggestions.
If you're a graduate student, please contact your DGS and ask to be added to the TWP application pool for the next academic year. We typically solicit applications in December and interview in March. If you're an undergraduate, the first step is enrolling in Writing 255. Please contact Dr. Eliana Schonberg for information on how to register for the course.
