Can my group meet with the Writing Center online?

You’re welcome to meet the Writing Center online for a group meeting of three or more participants. Please request group meetings by email in advance, as our regular online platform supports only two participants (one staff and one writer).

To request an online meeting with three or more participants: schedule an appointment with the Writing Center using one participant’s account; then email swwrite@columbia.edu to request a group meeting at least one day in advance if possible. We can create a Zoom meeting for your group, or you can send us information for a meeting you create through another accessible platform, such as Google Hangouts (supported by Lionmail).

NOTE: The student whose name appears on the schedule calendar for a given appointment must be present at that appointment. Also, consider creating group appointments for informal writing groups in addition to group writing projects for classes.
