Graduate Writing Consultant Appointments

To schedule a writing consultation, log into GRAD Garogyle, click on “Advising Appointments” and search for availability for one of the WRITING appointment types.


Your GWC appointment will not be approved until you fill out the required Cover Sheet form. GWC appointments are collaborations: this form is where you let us know what you’d like to work on in the appointment, and where you give us some context information about your document.

At least 24 hours before your appointment time, please submit your document (up to ten pages, double-spaced) by emailing it to the writing consultant you signed up to meet with or email it to GWC@lists.uchicago.eduWe must cancel your appointment if you miss this deadline.  

The document you submit and the discussion we have in session must fall under GWC purviews. GWCs can work on academic documents such as:

  • Dissertation Chapters
  • Thesis Proposals
  • Conference Papers
  • Abstracts
  • Papers for Coursework
  • Journal Articles
  • MA Thesis/Qualifying Papers

CANCELLATION POLICY: If you need to cancel or reschedule your session, please do so at least 48 hours before your appointment time. Again, please note that your appointment will be cancelled if you do not submit your document at least 24 hours in advance.
