How to Schedule a Writing Center Appointment online: 
Note: you will first need to sign up on Penji:
Signing takes only a moment, and the site uses your school email.  
 
Once you have an account: follow these brief instructions to schedule an appointment. 
  
Sign in to Penji:  
Click Learn  
Click Switch to Writing Center in the left column 
Click Schedule a one-on-one appointment 
Click on Writing Help and Click Next 
You will see an interactive calendar. Select a time and then click Select 
Click on the tutor and click Select 
Click “Teams—tutor will call you online.” Click Select 
In the box, type a brief description of what you are working on. Click Select 
Click Complete to schedule your meeting 

Once you have scheduled your appointment, the tutor will confirm it over Penji. You will receive an email confirmation or an alert on Penji if you download the phone version of the app.  

Please be available by Teams at the time of your appointment on a device with a camera and mic in a place with a good internet connection. It is better to be on a laptop or desktop than on a phone so that you can share work and work together more easily. 

If you have writing samples you wish to show the tutor, it saves time if you have that work on the Outlook Word app (See under the nine-dot grid on your email) or on Google Docs. But we can work with you if you have it saved on other locations or in other forms.  

*If you cannot make your appointment, please cancel the appointment on Penji or email the tutor who will cancel it for you.  

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Jane Wells at wells@muskingum.edu.
