Your New Favorite Resource. "Chat Live". Walden University Writing Center Chat Service
What does this mean for you?
This means that you can go to the Writing Center website, locate the Chat schedule, and sign in to chat during the available chat times to receive live help with your most pressing and immediate writing questions. 

Specifically, during chat, writing instructors can answer questions about academic writing, APA style and citation guidelines, writing process, word choice, sentence structure, and general grammar concerns. We can also answer questions about Writing Center services and resources, including myPASS, paper reviews, modules, webinars, and web resources. 

What does this Chat service allow you to do? 
The Chat service provides an additional communication channel for students who have immediate writing questions. Because online students often crave immediate, personalized support, this service’s goal is to reach students who may not be inclined to e-mail us with their inquiry (though our policy is to answer all emails within 24-hours) or try to search through our web content.

Through this synchronous chat service, we are able to: provide convenient and accessible writing support, answer a wide gamut of writing questions, expand our on-line offerings, and foster social learning. What value! 

How does the Chat service work specifically?

If you have never engaged in a live chat service before, do not fear. It is a straight forward, easy access, experience. Simple follow these steps: 

1. Log in to chat by clicking on the "chat live" button on the Writing Center homepage. 
2. Fill in the information fields 
3. Write your question/s in the text box 

That’s it! A writing instructor will be there to answer your question/s. 

Now that you know about the Writing Center Chat service, I invite you to give it a try and experience receiving real time writing assistance, instruction, and resources from qualified writing instructor professionals. It is truly a great opportunity
