About Online Writing Consultation

When you send a paper to the Writing Center email address (, our Online Consultants will send feedback directly to your email. Online Consultants will respond to your paper as a whole (not line-by-line). Please note: We will respond to any specific questions you ask, and our feedback will generally focus on what we call "global concerns": thesis, organization, development, etc. We will not proofread or edit your paper for you. If you'd like to try a video session during regular business hours, call 760-750-4168 to make arrangements.

We will typically be able to respond to a draft within 3-4 business days. We may be able to respond sooner, depending on the number of drafts we are working with.

Please note: We do not accept writing for GEW 101 online. Please bring your writing to the Writing Center in Kellogg 1103 for in-person help.
