Writing Appointments

Schedule Appointments

The Howe Writing Center invites all Miami students and alumni to schedule appointments (or what we call "consultations") for your writing projects, whether you are brainstorming, drafting, revising, or polishing.

Our writing consultants are Miami undergraduate or graduate students, from diverse majors across the university. They can assist you with any project, including the following:

  • Papers, reports, and group projects for any course in any department
  • Honors theses, Miami Plan capstone projects, master’s theses, and dissertations
  • PowerPoint presentations, websites, digital movies, and other non-print projects
  • Resumes, cover letters, personal statements, and applications for fellowships and employment
  • Personal and professional writing projects outside of class assignments

Types of Appointments

All appointments last 45 minutes or less.


The Howe Writing Center is committed to helping provide accommodations for all Miami writers with scheduled writing center consultations. To request an accommodation, or to inquire about the accommodations we can provide (i.e., viewing or accessing materials in alternative formats, getting feedback through live online or written online platforms, or using assistive technologies during an in-person consultation), please contact Dr. Lizzie Hutton (huttoneb@miamioh.edu) at least 2 business days prior to your consultation. Know that we are also happy to collaborate with the Miller Center in providing such accommodations.
