Graduate Online Writing Studio

Welcome

Welcome to the Graduate Online Writing Studio! Our experienced and supportive writing consultants offer holistic writing consultations to hone your writing, reading, critical thinking, and research skills. In the Writing Studio, we teach you how to write to learn. In doing so, you will focus on areas such as brainstorming, outlining, and drafting with a focus on assignment learning outcomes. Specifically, we will show you how to think critically about your work, analyze resources, show evidence of learning, consider your audience, paraphrase, and much more.

We expect you to take an active role in the writing-to-learn process. Ideally, you will return each week to scaffold your learning and self-evaluate as you continue to use our resource. We invite you to explore the valuable learning resources on our website that we have curated especially for you. We look forward to helping you succeed in your academic and professional career.

Now Let’s Get Started!

Writing Studio FAQs

How do I submit an assignment for review?

To request a writing consultation, attach your assignment and a completed Writing Consultation Request form to an email from your Keiser University email account and send it to [email protected] for assistance.

What resources does the Writing Studio provide?

  • We offer writing consultations that focus on the big picture to help you learn. Here is a list of some of the questions we focus on when we review your work.
    • Did you address the assignment requirements?
    • Did you show evidence of learning that will help you become a better practitioner in your field?
    • Does the work flow and contain a beginning, middle, and end?
    • Are your paragraphs organized?
    • Does your paraphrasing indicate you understood the information you have read?
    • Have you synthesized information from multiple sources on the same topic to increase the validity of the findings?
    • Have you used credible sources?
    • Are you thinking critically about your audience when you write?
    • Does your analysis provide high-level conclusions that you have drawn based on your reading of texts?
    • Is your writing formal and scholarly?
    • Are your sentences fluent?
    • Do your APA section headings provide insight into each section of your work?
  • We will not judge you. The Writing Studio offers a safe space for you to make mistakes and grow as a scholarly writer and thinker.
  • We tell you what we think you are doing well, and provide suggestions for growth opportunities.
  • We collaborate with you to improve your work, but we do not correct mistakes.
  • We respond to your writing-related concerns and provide support.
  • We offer follow-up consultations via telephone and email as needed to ensure you successfully apply our recommendations as you see fit.
  • We ask you to invest time into the process to maximize your success.

What does the Writing Studio not provide?

  • We do not edit or “fix” your work.
  • We do not write on your work. We provide holistic feedback in a separate document that we will share with you.
  • We do not address every strength and weakness in your work.
  • We do not provide punitive feedback, such as correcting minor errors in your work. We expect students to use the APA Manual and free software such as Grammarly to resolve these issues.
  • We do not repeat the same feedback throughout an assignment.
  • We cannot help you with quizzes, tests, or comp exams.
  • We do not predict grades or discuss concerns about professors.

Do you write feedback on my assignment?

No. Writing consultants provide meaningful feedback on your work in a separate document called a Writing Studio Student Portfolio. The portfolio is a living document housed in a Microsoft OneDrive folder. Only the Writing Studio, you, and your professor have access to it.

Every time you use the Writing Studio, our team will share feedback on your work in your portfolio, which you can view at any time. This portfolio will remain with you throughout your time as a student at the university.

Our consultations will identify opportunities for growth and commend you for the progress you demonstrate. The feedback you receive will be supportive and intended to help you succeed in your academic and professional career.

Every time you return to the Writing Studio, we will review the feedback we provided during prior visits, so we can ensure you are learning the best practices we share with you. Each new consultation in the portfolio will address prior issues, if necessary, and seek to identify new learning opportunities. The portfolio helps us track your progress and work collaboratively with you to close the loop on the learning strategies we share with you.

How do I schedule an appointment with a writing consultant to speak with them after they send me feedback on my assignment?

If you have questions about feedback on a writing consultation, you can schedule a phone call with a writing consultant after they review your assignment. To schedule a call, click the Microsoft Bookings calendar scheduler in your Writing Studio portfolio, locate the writing consultant’s name on the calendar, and select a date and time from their availability that fits your schedule.

What is my responsibility as a student?

  • Prepare your work for review by proofreading and revising it before sending it to us, so it arrives in the best possible condition. This step allows us to focus on areas where you truly need help.
  • Follow the submission procedures.
  • Read feedback from writing consultants and make improvements as you see fit.
  • Apply suggestions to your work.
  • Use the resource frequently to build your skills.

How long will it take to receive advice from a writing consultant?

Return times vary from a few hours to 72 hours. The length of time depends on the number of student requests in the queue ahead of you when you submit your request and the length of your document. We make every effort to send you feedback as soon as possible.

Will my professor give me a penalty-free extension if I submit my assignment to the Writing Studio before it is due?

We encourage every professor to provide a penalty-free extension to students who submit their requests to us before their assignment deadline, so you have time to make improvements and grow as a student. We encourage you to check with your professor for details on their policy.

How often can I use the Writing Studio?

You may use the Writing Studio as needed. Since we are not an editing service, though, we expect you to take the feedback we provide and apply it to your existing assignment and other assignments before resubmitting an assignment or submitting a new assignment. This step allows us to verify the transfer of knowledge and focus on new lessons. Thus, you may submit one assignment at a time. Please wait until you receive an assignment back and apply the feedback we share to all live documents before resubmitting an assignment or submitting a new assignment. Understanding that we focus on your long-term growth as a scholarly writer, we expect you to participate in the process by reflecting on your strengths and growth opportunities.

How will you share portfolio feedback with me?

After a writing consultant provides feedback in your Writing Studio portfolio, they will share the document with you and your professor via the Writing Studio’s Microsoft OneDrive. You will receive it via email as a view only SharePoint file. Only the recipients of the file will be able to open it. It will appear as a Word document once you click “Open” at the bottom of the message. You will find your most recent consultation feedback dated at the top of your portfolio. You must use your Keiser University email account. You will not be able to open your portfolio from any other email account. Please contact the Help Desk if you need technical assistance accessing the document.

Why does my professor have access to my Writing Studio portfolio?

We provide your professor with view-only access to your Writing Studio portfolio so they can read the suggestions we share with you and reinforce these lessons with you in class. The Writing Studio team collaborates with your professors to maximize your learning experience. Professors applaud students who use the Writing Studio as it demonstrates your dedication to learning.

I am getting good grades. Should I use the Writing Studio?

Yes! Most students who use the Writing Studio are earning good grades. Since most rubrics primarily assess course content, they do not necessarily correlate to your writing skills. In other words, a high grade in a course does not necessarily mean that you are a proficient writer. Every student can benefit from feedback on their writing. It will serve you well in your academic and professional career.

When is the Writing Studio available?

The Writing Studio is available seven days per week. Writing consultants work on a rotating basis throughout the day and evening, including weekends.

Am I required to incorporate all of the feedback from the Writing Studio?

No. You can apply feedback as you see fit based on your familiarity with your course, assignment, and professor. Writing Studio consultants do not have the expertise you do in your academic area, so we defer to students to make final decisions on their content.

What if I have a question about a writing consultant’s feedback?

Writing consultants will provide a contact phone number and email address, so you can contact them with questions. We welcome the opportunity for follow-up consultations. We also encourage you to submit your revision to the Writing Studio, so we can check on the application of the lessons we shared with you. A revision does not count as a new submission.

Will you review my entire assignment?

It depends. If we determine that you are repeating mistakes, we may stop after a certain number of pages and encourage you to apply our feedback to the rest of your work. Since we do not edit work, it would not make sense to repeat the same feedback on paraphrasing, organization, showing evidence of learning, etc.

Will I receive a good grade on my assignment if I use the Writing Studio

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee you a grade. Our goal is to provide you with meaningful and relevant feedback to help improve your learning experience. Most students who use the Writing Studio express satisfaction with our feedback and use our resource regularly.

My instructors believed in me. They were more than instructors, they tried to get to know you as a person and tried to understand your goals so they could push you towards them. Student services helped me find a job before I even graduated. Everyone was dedicated to my overall success.

Jessica Kircher

Going to Keiser University was one of the greatest experiences in my life. All of my deans, professors, and staff made me feel that I was a part of something very special, and I am. I would recommend for anyone to get their education at Keiser University.

Belinda Haney

The instructors at Keiser University impacted my life. They believed in my ability to become a great graphic designer, regardless of how I felt about my skills. KU helped to prepare me for the real world and got me to where I am today.

Justin Pugh

If not for my education at Keiser I probably would not be where I am today, in both life and career. It is because of going to Keiser and the instructors I had that I joined a club started by Mr. Williams, The Lakeland Shooters Photography Group, which allowed me to venture into an amazing and very creative field that I use to enhance all aspects of my life.

Anthony Sassano

The Design program at Keiser University was filled with real world learning and hands on instruction… Based on the portfolio I created while a student at Keiser University, I landed a job in Graphic Design for a major online retailer immediately after graduation.

Ty Fitzgerald

The year and a half I spent in the program better prepared me for attaining a job in the field…As a hands-on learner, the project-centered teaching was perfect for me.

Jackson Tejada

Keiser University has given me the opportunity to embrace a career change… It has opened the door for a timely graduation and quick return to the work force…

Dale Caverly

Without the education I received at Keiser University, I would not be where I am today!

Meisha Ebanks, R.N.

I not only received an excellent education but also encouragement and training that built my self-confidence every day.

I realize the amount of knowledge I gained and feel that the educational experiences have developed me in to a person who can move higher up the career ladder.

Carlos Ramirez Flores

Keiser University’s MBA program has renewed my mind, changed the way I think, and given me a new sense of purpose.  The professors transformed my attitude and behavior, gave me the self-confidence I was lacking, and restored my energy.

Connie Sue Centrella

It has been great attending and graduating from Keiser University.  Because of the small class sizes, I was able to build good relationships with classmates and professors.  The PA professors care very much about the progress and success of the students and have been great advisors every step of the way through the program.

Annelise Merriner, PA-C

Attending Keiser University and getting my degree was the best decision I have ever made.  The small class sizes and personalized attention helped me get my degree quickly.  The hands-on experience and the education landed me a job at a neighboring law firm.

Dedrick Saxon

I chose Keiser because it had everything—small classes, caring professors, hands-on learning, and counselors that are really there for you.  I feel like I’m part of a family here, not just a number.

Natalie Dou

After being denied for several promotions at my current employer, I decided that I needed to further my education.  Since graduating from Keiser with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I have been promoted and I am able to obtain positions that weren’t available to me before.

Laurie Williams

Beyond the curriculum of the courses, the lessons the instructors have taught me have paid dividends in my real work experiences. How to respond to criticisms, project and time management, interview skills, the list goes on and on. At the end of the day, they not only showed me how to design, but they taught me how to be a professional.

Ryan Bushey

Keiser helped change my life by getting my education at the right school! I had been going to another school before, I dropped out because I felt that I was not getting enough information. When I found out about Keiser, I was pleased because the instructors were great.

Nadege Dor

My decision to attend Keiser University has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I chose to enroll in the Information Technology program… The one-class-a-month pace helped incredibly with my self-discipline.

Marla Hadley

The BA for Business Administration at Keiser has to be one of the best in the nation. Keiser takes the basics that are taught at the Associates level and uses them to strengthen your skills and knowledge.

Vivian R. Howard, BA in Business Administration Graduate

I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested.
