The Writing Center supports writers at George Mason University through one-to-one consultations at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming to the final phases of polishing. You can book free 45-minute appointments to meet with a tutor online or to submit a draft for written feedback. Tutors can help you develop your ideas, provide feedback on a draft, answer your questions, and show you strategies for brainstorming, organizing, drafting, revising, and editing.
While all instruction is taking place online, all writing center sessions are offered online as well. Writers may choose to meet a tutor on Zoom or submit a draft for a tutor's written feedback.
