Academic Writing Support

The Academic Writing Support Service provides students with feedback on their writing.  Meet one-on-one with qualified faculty (in-person or online) to get help with planning and/or structuring your writing in a clear and concise manner.  Book an appointment with us to better understand your assignments, discuss your work-in-progress, or receive e-mail feedback on your work so far.

You can also register for a workshop designed to take your writing to the next level, or browse our collection of writing-related resources.

    Book an appointment with Writing Support

Make a 45-minute appointment to receive feedback on your written work. Qualified Writing Support faculty can help you understand and plan your written assignments, help you come up with a clear thesis statement and topic sentences, help you with your grammar and sentence structure, and/or help you revise and properly format your initial draft before you submit the assignment for marks.

Appointments can be held face-to-face in-person as well as online using Kaltura Virtual Classroom web conferencing software. Alternatively, you can opt to receive feedback by email.
