SMFA Writing Consultations
The Academic Resource Center (ARC) offers one-to-one appointments on the SMFA campus to discuss any writing project, from class assignments to artist statements and capstone projects.

ARC writing consultations are free for all undergraduate or graduate students at SMFA.
Appointment time slots are one hour long. To make an appointment, log in to SIS and choose "Tutor Finder" from the drop-down Academic menu. Then choose the type of project and appointment time that works for you.
