Student Success in the Office of Student Affairs manages the Writing Collaborative, which is available at no charge to students currently enrolled in any school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
Writing coaches are available to meet individually with students to assist with assigned coursework and papers, personal statements, CVs/resumes, or cover letters. Writing coaches assist students by discussing structure, ideas, and clarity and by offering feedback on samples or a portion of the paper. Writing coaches do not proofread or edit. The goal of the Writing Collaborative is to add value to the educational experience through writing critique and feedback.
Students are encouraged to schedule a meeting with a writing coach as early in the semester as possible. Once a request for the Writing Collaborative is received, writing coaches typically provide feedback within 7-10 days.
Students should review the Writing Collaborative FAQs before requesting writing support.
