Writing Centre


Welcome! We are open for both synchronous (in-person and video) and asynchronous appointments and we look forward to working with you!


Welcome to the Writing Centre!

The Writing Centre offers writing support in all subjects to students in undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs, from first-year assignments to final reports and dissertations. We meet with students one-to-one to discuss their work, and we also offer workshops, seminars, and other special events to support student writing, including grad writing weeks and supplemental classes designed to support students in writing-intensive courses. 

Our goal at the Writing Centre is to support students to write independently; in doing so, we are happy to provide feedback on any step of the writing process including pre-writing, structure, grammar, punctuation, and citation, but the Writing Centre is not a proofreading or copyediting service.
