Writing Center Appointments

***The Gallatin Writing Center welcomes all Gallatin students and students taking Gallatin courses. For those who are neither Gallatin students nor enrolled in a Gallatin course, please contact the NYU Writing Center.***

In the Writing Center (Room 423), upper-level Gallatin students are employed as Peer Writing Assistants (PWAs), trained to help other students at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming about a subject, to clarifying a thesis, to organizing the structure of an essay.

To book an appointment with a PWA, select your desired, available time and leave a brief description of what you would  like to work on. You must be logged into your NYU Gmail account to make an appointment.

Students are recommended to make appointments online, however, feel free to drop by during the open hours to see if a PWA is available.

A Note on What to Expect at the Writing Center

 
At the Writing Center we can help you…
  • Articulate ideas, pose compelling questions, and structure a clear paper.
  • Work within the parameters of a particular assignment. For example, we can look over your paper with "fresh eyes" to see if your writing conveys what you want it to.
We don't…
  • Quickly "fix" papers or look only for grammatical errors.
  • During your appointment we may address grammar and usage, though in the service of helping you articulate ideas within your piece overall. We are happy to provide additional resources and tips for proofreading.
Additional information…
  • Bring a printed copy (preferably two) of your writing.
  • Bring the assignment or prompt from your professor so that we can more accurately guide you.
  • Be on time for your appointment. Unfortunately when students are late, the appointment still ends at the scheduled time. Students are welcome to sign up for an appointment at a later date for additional help.
  • Walk-ins are welcome. However, please be aware that our appointments fill up quickly and we cannot guarantee a PWA will be available or, if they are available, how much time they will have to meet with you. The best way to ensure a spot for a full hour is to visit our website and make an appointment. Same-day appointments are allowed.
  • If you need to cancel an appointment, please do so online and free up space for other students. If in the event the Writing Center must close during a time you have a scheduled appointment, you will receive an email and request to reschedule.
