Write Place Information for Students

The Write Place offers support on any writing assignment and at any stage of the writing process. 


Office of Learning Resources will provide remote access to all services while students are learning remotely. Please see the most current OLR COVID-19 updates at go.udayton.edu/learning.


You may use the Write Place for any stage of writing:

  • Brainstorming as soon as you receive your assignment.
  • Feedback after you have completed your first draft.
  • Feedback on your final draft.

Use the Write Place as often as you like!

  • Most sessions last approximately 30-50 minutes.
  • The consultant will invite you to read your paper aloud, pausing from time to time to discuss both strengths and weaknesses in the writing.
  • The consultant will NOT write on your paper. Please be prepared to take notes on your essay as you work with the consultant.
  • This is a writing consultation, essentially a conversation about your writing. So, be prepared to talk! Sharing ideas and working together with the consultant will ensure the best possible paper.
  • At the end of your session, the consultant will review the main actions you can take to further improve your paper.

NOTE: Please keep in mind our mission; we do not proofread or edit papers. Since consultants are not instructors, we cannot predict or “promise” a grade. It is always best to discuss the assessment of your writing directly with your course instructor.
