WLU Robinson Writing Center Logo

Welcome to the scheduling website of the West Liberty University Robinson Writing Center where WLU students can make an appointment to work one-on-one with a trained writing consultant! If you are new to our website, click "Register for an account" on the left.

During the spring 2021 semester, we will be offering both online and face-to-face consultations.

Online Consultations:

Students can schedule online consultations by logging in on the left and clicking on one of the white squares to open the appointment form. Three of our consultants, Samaria, Summer, and Alexis, are offering online consultations. If you schedule with one of these consultants, your appointment will take place online through this website. 

Our online consultations work similar to Zoom, WebEx, or Skype. In other words, we are available to video chat with you and offer feedback on your writing during your scheduled time.  Once you sign up for an online appointment, you will then need to log back into the system 5-10 minutes before your scheduled time, open your appointment form by clicking on the yellow square, and click “Start or Join Online Consultation.” 

View the video below to learn more about our online consultations which allow you to video and text chat with your consultant. Note that you will need to enable your microphone and camera to video chat. You and the consultant will share a “whiteboard” screen where you can work on your writing assignment. This screen will be saved in our system, so you can log back in to see your draft, the consultant’s suggestions (which will be in a different text color), an outline you created together, etc. You can even play back the consultation to see a video of how your writing developed and changed. 

A Note on Preparing for Online Consultations: Please schedule your online consultation during a time when you can be fully attentive to your writing and your consultant if possible. For example, don't schedule your consultation for when you are in another meeting, need to work on another assignment, etc. We also recommend that you use a computer for the session rather than a cell phone. Though you should be able to access our online system using a phone, it will likely be more difficult to see and interact with the site's features on a smaller screen. 

A Note on Online "Walk-Ins": Students are welcome to "walk-in" during open online appointments. For example, if you log into the system at 1:05pm and see that there is an open appointment for 1:00pm, this means that there is a consultant available to work with you. Simply fill out the appointment form, click "Create Appointment," return to the appointment form, and click "Start or Join Online Consultation."

Face-to-Face Appointments:

One of our consultants, Emily, is offering face-to-face consultations. To schedule, log in on the left and clicking on one of the white squares next to Emily's name.
