At the Writing Centre, instructors from the English department are available on a drop-in basis to help all students, staff and faculty write clearly, logically and effectively in various fields of study. 

We welcome writers at all levels, at any stage of their writing from planning a long assignment to polishing a final draft.

What We Offer

A drop-in centre where you can work on your writing with faculty who are available to answer your questions and offer feedback and instruction. Since many university writing assignments are based on reading, we also offer assistance with reading those texts.

More than 200 information sheets and exercises on many aspects of the writing process, from using commas correctly to documenting in MLA and APA style. Many of these sheets are available online

An online Ask an Instructor service for when you can’t come to the Writing Centre (available soon). You can expect a response in a day or two.

An extensive collection of dictionaries and reference books on grammar, composition, language, literature and research available for use in the centre.
