Writing and Communication Center

Online Conference System

Notice: during the summer/fall break our turors are enjoying much deserved time off. We will be checking our online queue and asking tutors to respond as soon as they are able. We cannot guarantee a response time during the break. Thank you for your understanding.

We will open fully staffed for regularly scheduled conferences on Wednesday, September 29th at 9:00 am.

To submit a paper for an online (email) conference, enter the required information in each field of the online submission form, then send us an email at uwbwconf@uw.edu with your paper attached as an MS Word document.

NOTE: We can only provide feedback if the submission form is completed in its entirety. We cannot guarantee a prompt response if the submission form is incomplete.

Please read the Frequently Asked Questions below before using this system.

If you have any questions, please email us at uwbwacc@uw.edu or call us at 425-352-5253 during our regular office hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I talk to a live person?
Call us at 425-352-5253 during our regular office hours.

Do I need to register to use this system?
Nope. Just complete the required form and email your paper to us. It's that easy!

How soon will I receive a response to my paper?
We strive to respond to all submissions within 48 business hours, but we can't make any guarantees. Submit your paper early so you'll have plenty of time to make revisions. Papers are always responded to in the order in which they are received.

What kind of response can I expect? Will you edit my paper?
Rather than editing your paper, our writing consultants will provide strategies to help you improve your writing. We'll ask clarifying questions, show you examples for revision, and offer suggestions that will help you through the writing process. Give yourself plenty of time to revise your work with the new ideas and techniques provided in the consultant's response.

I'm not a UW Bothell student. Can I use this resource?
Unfortunately, we can only serve UW Bothell students. As time allows, we can also help alumni and folks who are preparing personal statements for application to UW Bothell.

How do I get a response to my paper?
You will receive an email from uwbwconf@uw.edu. Our feedback will be in an attached MS Word document.

Need help? No problem. Just call us at 425-352-5253 during our regular office hours.
