SHS Writing Center

Welcome!

We cannot begin to understand and measure the ways that COVID-19 has impacted our world, but what we can do is offer you our support as we navigate remote and hybrid learning together. Our mission remains the same: to promote positive change and growth within our community with writing. Our Writing Center consultants are eager to offer you quality feedback on your writing regardless of whether or not it is for a class. Bring us your essays and your lab reports as well as your poems, short stories, and open letters. We want to read it all!

To maintain social distancing, we have temporarily suspended in-person appointments in the Writing Center. However, there are two ways you can reach us. Our asynchronous and synchronous options are outlined below.

Note: The asynchronous option does NOT mean that you can only choose that option on asynchronous days. Both options are available to you on any school day from 7:50 AM - 2:15 PM.

ASYNCHRONOUS OPTION

Submit your writing online and receive feedback via email within 48 hours!

Submit a draft for online review using the Online Submission Form (below). Please follow the directions in the form to ensure that we have commenting privileges in your document.

One of our consultants will email you with feedback within two school days. Please plan accordingly!

SYNCHRONOUS OPTION

Meet online with an SHS consultant via a secure platform for live feedback!

Go to WCOnline. Create an account using your school email and password. The screen will look something like this.

The white spaces represent open appointments. Yellow spaces mean that appointment time has been claimed. As you can see, we have available tutors every hour of the school day every day of the week! Choose the time you would prefer (scroll down for future dates) and click in an available box. You will then see a screen like the one below.

Choose "Schedule Online appointment" for a virtual meeting with your consultant. If you are in-person and plan to visit the physical Writing Center, then choose "face-to-face." Fill in the necessary information including details about your assignment. This will help your consultant prepare for your session. Then click CREATE APPOINTMENT. You should receive an email confirmation. About five minutes before your appointment, log back into Writing Center Online and click "Start or Join Consultation."

Feedback Form

At the conclusion of your appointment with the Center or after you receive online feedback, please fill out the Feedback Form (below). We appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we're doing!
