The Writing Centre provides personalized, one-on-one sessions with highly skilled instructors to help you develop your thinking and writing at university.  Meeting with one of our friendly and supportive instructors is one of the most effective ways of improving your writing, whether you are working on your very first university essay or your first publication. We work with students at all stages of the research and writing process, across all fields of study, on all genres of assignments, and at all levels (from first to senior years).

Our free 50 minute sessions are geared to you, the student, and to the particular paper you are working on. If you have not yet started writing, we can help you better understand the assignment expectations, plan your process, or begin fleshing out ideas. If you bring in a draft, we can work intensively with the text, showing you how to develop your analysis or improve its coherence. We can also help you with grammar and style, but rather than proofread papers for you, we teach you how to become a more effective editor of your own work. The Writing Centre provides a place for you to talk about your ideas and learn how to better communicate them.
