Frequently asked questions

How does writing support work?

Easy. Just email me at sonwriting@uw.edu and I’ll help you figure out what you need and make an appointment.

Will you edit my paper?

I typically use highlighting and make comments on the side rather than editing the text you’ve written. My goal is to help build your writing skills by having a conversation about your writing where I help you identify opportunities for improvement.

Do I have to be on campus to get help?

I’m happy to meet in person or online with Teams, whatever is comfortable for you.

Do you have office hours for walk-in or call-in appointments?

I have weekly office hours each quarter, and update my bookings page to reflect accurate availability. You can find the link below! These are by appointment only, so there is no true “walk-in” time but you are welcome to email me to discuss availability outside of my office hours.

Are your only appointments during the day?

I will work with you to find a time that works for both of us, even if it’s outside my usual hours.

Is writing support just for class assignments?

I can help with whatever academic or professional writing you are doing, including scholarship essays, manuscripts you’re submitting for publication, etc.

Can you help me with my literature search and/or citation management software?

This expertise lives in the UW libraries and is not the focus of writing support. I will occasionally give pointers, but those areas are outside the scope of the writing RA role. A good place to start is the links on the writing support webpage.
