Jacobson Center for Writing, Teaching and Learning and SSW

The Jacobson Center Writing Counselors—Debra Carney, Peter Sapira, and Kelly Vogel—welcome you to Smith SSW and invite you to watch this short video about the academic support services they offer.  See below for more detailed information about writing center offerings including individual writing counseling, workshops and the SSW Writing Resources Course on Moodle.


 


Individual Writing Counseling

Our experience has shown us that all writers can benefit from feedback on their writing, no matter what their level of expertise, so make appointments with us to discuss your work at any stage of the process. We can help you break down an assignment, brainstorm ideas, create an outline, organize first drafts and polish final papers. We’re here to help you produce your best work by building on your strengths. We also offer more specialized work for English Language Learners and people with learning differences.

To schedule an individual writing counseling appointment, please use our electronic calendar: WCOnline. You can upload your paper(s) when you make appointments.
