Keiser Writing Studio

Helping Students One Paper at a Time


Welcome to the Keiser Writing Studio! Our experienced and supportive writing coordinators offer holistic writing consultations to hone your writing, reading, critical thinking, and research skills. Keiser University students have the option of receiving written feedback on their work, or scheduling a synchronous phone call or Teams meeting with OWL coordinators to discuss their work. In the Keiser Writing Studio, we will help you focus on areas such as brainstorming, outlining, and drafting, considering your 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 invite you to explore the valuable learning resources on this website. You can also find additional resources within our Blackboard course room. We look forward to helping you succeed in your academic and professional career.

What resources does the Keiser 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? Does it 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 Keiser 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 consultations via telephone and Teams to ensure you successfully apply our recommendations as you see fit.

Do you write feedback on my assignment?

Yes. Writing coordinators will provide meaningful feedback within in-line comments in your documents. They will also offer an overall summary of their feedback within your Submit a Paper form. This is why it is important that both documents are saved in Microsoft Word; this allows the coordinators to leave comments in the work.

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. We encourage you to return to us with each revision.


How do I schedule an appointment with a writing coordinator?

If you have questions about feedback on a writing consultation or you want to work with a coordinator synchronously, you can schedule a phone call or Teams meeting with a writing coordinator through the Request a Meeting tab in the Blackboard course room.

​To schedule a call or Teams meeting, locate the writing coordinator’s name on the Bookings calendar, and select a date and time from their availability that fits your schedule. Add your details, including name, email, phone number, and explain the help that you desire in the Notes section.

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. We will check on your progress when you return, so make sure you read the feedback and resources we share with you and apply the strategies. We will direct you to prior feedback we offered if we find that you have not applied it to your next assignment. This step ensures that you are making learning gains.
  • Use the Keiser Writing Studio frequently to build your skills.

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

We strive to return work within 24-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 will make every effort to send you feedback as soon as possible.

How often can I use the Keiser Writing Studio?

You may use the Keiser Writing Studio as needed. Submit one assignment, discussion post, or dissertation chapter at a time. After you receive feedback from us on one assignment and apply the strategies we share on your next assignment or revision, you can submit a new request.

Since we are not an editing service, we expect you to take the feedback we provide and apply it to your existing assignment and other assignments before resubmitting. This step allows us to verify the transfer of knowledge and focus on new lessons. As 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 feedback with me?

When you submit through our Submit a Paper tab, you will receive feedback through your email. Please make sure to include your preferred email address on your Submission Form.

I’m getting good grades. Should I use the Keiser Writing Studio?

Yes! Most students who use the Keiser 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 Keiser Writing Studio available?

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

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

No. You can apply feedback as you see fit based on your familiarity with your course, assignment, and professor. Keiser Writing Studio coordinators 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 coordinator’s feedback?

You can schedule a phone or Teams meeting through the Request a Meeting tab within our Blackboard classroom.

Will I receive a good grade on my assignment if I use the Keiser 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 Keiser Writing Studio express satisfaction with our feedback and use our resource regularly.
