Appointment Online

The Writing Support Centre is not meeting with students in-person until further notice. Students can book an "appointment" for their paper using our online booking system to secure a time for their written work to be reviewed online. Students with booked appointments will have their work reviewed, and comments emailed to them, at the time their appointment is scheduled. See the instructions below.

Written work can be submitted directly to Online Writing Assistance without a booked appointment. Students will have their work reviewed on a first-come first-served basis. Our response time will be dependent on the volume of submissions we receive. 

Our writing advisors will provide useful and informed feedback whatever your stage in the writing process. Our writing advisors can help you with all types of academic and professional writing across all disciplines. Keep in mind, we are not an editing service. Our goal is to help you become a better writer and communicator.
