Online Writing Assistance

Online Writing Assistance


Western Students can submit their written work online. Our writing advisors will review your work and email you useful and informed feedback about your writing. 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. Please read the "How it works" guidelines before submitting your work. 

How it works:

  • Fill out the Online Writing Assistance form using the link below to submit a draft of your writing assignment or any writing-related questions.
  • You must provide your Western email address (@uwo.ca) when filling out the form.
  • We are only able to respond to one submission at a time. Once you have submitted your work you must wait until you receive our feedback before submitting additional writing. Multiple submissions will be ignored.  
  • We spend the same time with online submissions as we do in our 50-minute one-to-one counselling sessions. This means we can read and comprehensively respond to about 5 pages of written work.
  • Students should be as specific as possible with their questions for the writing advisor. Do not just cut and paste the assignment instructions. 
  • Due to high demand for our online service, advisors may choose not to review submissions that have been previously reviewed. Advisors may also choose to not review submissions if they deem writers have not adequately attempted to incorporate advisor feedback from previous submissions. To ensure learning occurs, writers must actively participate in the learning process.
  • We are not an editing service. We are a teaching unit. We will provide general comments on how to improve your written work.
  • The Writing Support Centre will not review any exams (including take-home exams or comprehensive examinations).
