Are you finding it challenging to start or finish a writing project for your graduate work? Join us for our Monday Grad Student Writing Group. Writers have reported they find the Writing Centre’s Writing Week to be an effective “push” to getting their writing completed and this group is an extension of that programming. Writers show up online on Mondays at 9:00 (ADT) to discuss writing and issues that inhibit their writing, and to set micro-, daily, and weekly goals. They plan their writing for the day and spend the day writing. At 4:00 (ADT), writers give a one-minute progress report and hear about other students' efforts to succeed. Through this process, you will gain confidence and the time to complete your writing project.

Are you a first-year or transfer student?
If you're in your first year or have transferred to Dalhousie from another university, we encourage you to book a first appointment of 50 minutes (or two consecutive 25-minute appointments in the online system) to meet with a tutor to address your specific circumstances, background, and concerns.
You will have a better understanding of university writing expectations, and you will have made a solid connection with a tutor whom you can meet with again.
Make an appointment focusing on presentations or posters with the Writing Centre. We can provide non-evaluative feedback and help you polish your presentation.
Welcome to the Writing Centre!
We are open and ready to help you succeed this semester!
The Writing Centre offers writing support in all subjects—from academic assignments to dissertations—for undergraduate and graduate students. We meet with you one-on-one to discuss your work and we also offer events and seminars. You may be able to take advantage of supplemental class resources: these classes are designed to support students in early-program, writing-intensive courses. We're not a proofreading or editing service—our goal is to teach you to write independently.
