  • A copy of the writing you want to work on or any ideas you have for your project
  • Any materials that will help your consultant understand the context of your writing project. These might include the assignment sheet, the syllabus, in-class notes, previous drafts or feedback on your writing, or any other materials you think it would be helpful to share with the consultant.
  • A pen and paper to take notes from the session
