On-line Consulting

At Writers Ink, we recognize that students are busy. Between homework, sports, and extracurriculars, it can sometimes be hard to find time to meet with a consultant. That's why we created the on-line consulting option. Simply submit your essay to us via e-mail, and we'll return it to you within 3 business days with marginal comments and broader end comments.

Need feedback sooner? No problem. We offer a premium service where we'll return your essay within 24 hours with the same thorough, high quality comments.

Skype Consultations

The Skype Consultation is the perfect way for students to get additional feedback on their writing. It's also a great option for students who feel more confident discussing their ideas verbally. With the Skype Consultation, students receive written marginal and end comments on their essays and then a follow-up 30 minute Skype session to discuss the comments in more detail and address any lingering concerns or questions.

Skype Consultations: Brainstorming

Students can also use the Skype Consultation at the beginning of the writing process to brainstorm ideas. We know that nothing is more frustrating than staring at a blank computer screen. At Writers Ink, we can help you minimize that. Just send us the paper prompt, and we're more than happy to have a 30 minute brainstorming session to help you generate ideas, organize your thoughts, and start your essay off on the right foot.

In Person Consultations

Our premier service. There's something invaluable about talking through ideas face to face. With the In Person Consultation service, students receive marginal comments and end comments on their papers, followed by a one hour long private consultation session. This is a great opportunity for students to receive additional feedback on their ideas, run new ideas by consultants, and talk through their ideas.

With this service, students have the opportunity to resubmit their work to consults at a discounted rate.

In Person Consultation: Brainstorming

Students are also welcome to use the In Person Consultation session at the beginning of their writing process to generate ideas. Simply send us the paper prompt, and we'll happily meet with you in person to help you come up with ideas, outline your paper, and offer suggestions.
