Baruch’s students are future leaders, thinkers, and entrepreneurs. That is, writers. No matter what your goals are, you’ll need to communicate—and persuade—through writing in order to excel.
We offer a variety of services to help you deepen the writing and language skills you need to succeed, in classes and in your career. Read below for an overview of our services, then click through for more information to help choose what kind of support is right for you and your goals.
Our core service is a 50-minute, one-to-one consultation. These appointments are held in-person in the Writing Center and at the Newman Library Reference Desk, and via online chat. Learn more about one-to-one sessions and how to schedule and prepare for them here.
Library Walk-in Sessions
In addition to our 50-minute appointments at the Newman Library Reference Desk, we also offer first-come, first-served 20-minute walk-in consultations. Walk-in sessions are excellent for addressing contained writing questions and concerns or very short pieces of writing. More information on our library location can be found here.
You can also upload your draft to our online scheduler with 2-3 questions on the writing issues most important to you. We’ll return your paper with a response to guide your next steps. Learn more about when Written Feedback is most effective, and how to submit a draft here.
Each week, we host four different workshops on essential academic writing skills. In a small group of motivated students, you’ll learn concrete techniques and apply them to your own reading, research, and writing projects. Details about getting the most from your workshop, how to register, and this semester’s schedule can be found here.
This semester, we’re piloting Writing Groups. These groups of three or more students meet regularly to write, learn, and revise collaboratively with a consultant facilitator. Click here to join a group or form your own.
