THE WRITE PLACE is a free and confidential service provided by the Department of Modern Languages. We are committed to helping all students become better writers! Students from all disciplines are encouraged to visit for help with any assignment: academic essays, book reviews, graduate school applications, creative writing, and much more! We can help at any stage of the writing process—from brainstorming ideas to helping students learn to revise and edit their own work.
What We Do:
Trained Peer Tutors give feedback on many aspects of writing; rather than editing, we help students to become better writers by focusing on areas such as clarity, structure, cohesion, and mechanics. We listen and provide an honest response.
Creative Writing feedback and workshops are also available with Dr. Dorothy Nielsen. Stop by for more details!
About the Appointment:
We cannot work with laptops or electronic copies! Please bring the assignment sheet and a hard copy of your work. Appointments are generally 50 minutes in length.
Location and Hours:
We are conveniently located in the King Centre, room 113, right beside Tim Horton’s. Our hours of operation are Monday to Thursday, 10am to 6pm, and Friday, 10am to 4pm. The Write Place usually operates on a drop-in basis; however, during busy periods an appointment is recommended.
