In addition to conferencing with peer tutors, the graduate student can also receive assistance from the Writing Center's graduate writing consultant, whose office is located in IRIC 117. The graduate writing consultant works exclusively with grad students to provide in-depth and ongoing feedback for larger projects such as proposals, theses, and dissertations. Conferences are available in-person and online, so students can access writing support whether they are on the Moscow campus or studying from a distance.
For the 2021/2022 school year, the graduate writing consultant is Paul Bisagni. Students can see availability for Paul and all peer tutors, and schedule appointments, using the Writing Center's online calendar. After logging in, select the calendar labeled Graduate Writing Consultant - Fall 2021. For questions, email Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Writing Center at 208-885-6644.
