The Writing Centre provides 1:1 consultations and workshops in a friendly, relaxing setting.
Our Communication Advisors (CAs) also hold weekly group workshops covering professional and academic writing.
Our team of consultants from a range of disciplines are keen to give you 1:1 feedback at any stage of the writing process on any type of writing project, including but not limited to:
– Course assignments,
– Dissertations and theses,
– Personal statements, cover letters and resumes, and
– IELTS, TOEFL, and other exam writing practice.
Consultants will point out issues in your writing, and discuss potential solutions to those issues with you. Our aim is to help writers make decisions about their writing, become critical readers of their own work, and to develop skills for revising their writing autonomously. Note that consultants will not proofread or edit your work, or do anything that would result in the consultant becoming a co-author of the text.
Students are encouraged to upload their work two days before their 1:1 consultation so their consultant can read it and prepare beforehand. During the high-demand period in the second half of the semester, if you are not able to upload your work in time and need urgent help, you can book an Express Consultation.
