Go to Meeting Sessions:
A Go to Meeting Session (GTM) is a live writing session with a Writing Assistant. In addition to sending your paper to the IU OWL, you must schedule an appointment by calling the Writing Center 610-647-4400 x3494.
Click here to view our GTM tutorial! After the first time, it's like eating a cup of chocolate mousse, or an apple pie with vanilla bean ice cream, or a creme brulee in a Paris cafe.
