Written Feedback

The Writing Centre will begin taking papers for the summer semester on July 5.

Our peer writing tutors are available to provide you with written feedback on your writing.  You submit your paper online, and within 1-3 business days (Monday to Friday), one of our tutors will send you your feedback. 

Your paper does not have to be finished; you can submit a few paragraphs or a draft in progress.

Tutors are typically able to comment on 2-3 areas of improvement in any given session, but students can resubmit their work up to two times for more feedback after making revisions. 

*NOTE: To access our submission form, you must be logged into your account in Google! For information about how to switch accounts, click here

Online Appointments

If you need to talk through a particular writing challenge, like how to get started on a paper, you can schedule a 45-minute online meeting with one of our tutors. A link to the session will be sent to you via email. 

**Students can schedule up to two sessions per week.**
