Hartford Seminary offers all students the services of a Writing Consultant, at no charge to the student. The Writing Consultant, Emily Holcombe, helps students improve their command of written English, organize essays and research papers, and follow the rules for footnotes and bibliography. Submitted writing must be for current coursework at Hartford Seminary.
To make an appointment, please phone or text Emily at (860) 707-4585, and/or email Eghnewmoon@aol.com, both to request appointments and to submit papers. Emily can meet during the week by arrangement with individual students, in person or online; in addition, she has set office hours on campus two times per week, where she can meet in person or online:
Office Hours (Room 207, Student Meeting Room)
Monday: 2 – 4pm
Thursday: 2 – 4pm
Please note that during inclement weather, Emily may not be on campus. Please call, email or text her on those days.
Emily prefers to receive papers by e-mail attachment, but is open to other arrangements. In addition to face-to-face meetings, Room 207 is now equipped with a computer and screen for online or off campus students to confer with Emily.
Please note that all papers must be submitted ahead of time in order to allow for editing and revision — both for Emily and you.
