How the Service Works:
Using your ashland.edu email address, email email@example.com
If you do not use your ashland.edu email address, you may get an error message.
In your email specify:
1. Your name and contact information
2. Your graduate program and the course you're in
3. A description of the project and deadlines
4. Your preferred method of help
- All graduate consultants can provide asynchronous, online feedback to a draft. Some consultants are also available to meet with you on campus, over the phone, or via webchat. Specify your preference in the initial email so you can be matched up with a consultant who can meet your needs.
About Graduate Writing Consultation:
What we can do:

We cannot do:
- GWCs cannot "fix" or correct errors--they can identify them and point you to recources for help
- GWCs cannot be content experts in your discipline. GWCs are masters-qualified experts in writing. They can help with your writing but cannot tell you whether you have gotten your content "right." Consult your professor for help with that.
- GWCs cannot write your work for you. They are here for your guidance and support only.
- GWCs do work outside the 9-5 workday, but are not on-call 24/7. Do not wait until the last minute to request help.
