Writing Studio

Covid-19 and Getting Help from the Writing Center

Because the university has decided to move all courses to online delivery for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester, the Writing Centers at Saint Mary’s will move all their tutoring sessions online.  Face-to-face appointments will not be available during this time. 

The Winona campus Writing Studio tutors will offer writing feedback via Google Docs. Here’s how:

1.  Sign up for an appointment at least 3 hours in advance

2.  Copy your paper AND your writing assignment to Google Docs and share with your tutor

3.  Be aware that your tutor may call you at some point during or after your appointment with questions or feedback

*Instructions for this new online format are available here.

College students will now be able to get email feedback from the professional Writing Consultants on the Twin Cities campus by submitting to the Online Queue. A writing consultant will email you written feedback by the date requested (please give us a minimum of 24 hours to provide feedback). If you have any questions , please email Michelle Herrin at mherrin@smumn.edu
