The Writing Centre offers writing support in all subjects to undergraduate and graduate students, from first-year assignments to final dissertations. We meet with students one-to-one to discuss their work and also offer workshops, seminars, and other special events to support student writing.

You may also be able to take advantage of our supplemental class resources: these classes are designed to support students in writing-intensive courses, especially in first year.

Our goal at the Writing Centre is to teach students to write independently, and as such, it is not a proofreading or editing service. We also help with grammar, punctuation, and citation but do so from a teaching rather than an editing perspective.

Book an appointment:

To book an appointment, send the appointment request details (Intake Form), the paper you are working on (if you have a draft), and the assignment guidelines to: writingc@dal.ca
