The Write Place
WELCOME TO THE WRITE PLACE AT KING’S UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
The Write Place is a hub for writers and writing at King’s and part of the Department of English, French, and Writing. Our tutors, writing consultants, and writing specialists empower writers working on academic and creative projects, helping build the confidence that comes with improved reading, thinking, and communication skills. Our specialists also serve as resources on writing pedagogy for professors from all disciplines. We are committed to a vibrant, inclusive, and creative workplace culture that reflects the diversity at King’s.
Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to get to know our tutors and to see what we are doing each week of the year! If you have comments, concerns or suggestions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you promptly.
WE ARE TUTORING ONLINE!
To keep writers and staff safe, we are now delivering our services virtually through a combination of e-tutoring (email) and video conferencing appointments. To make an online tutoring appointment, visit kings.mywconline.com.
Whom can I work with?
In the Fall/Winter term, you can book appointments with Write Place tutors and consultants, writing specialists, and the creative writing consultant. In the Summer term, you can book appointments with the Write Place tutors and consultants.
What kind of feedback will I get?
While tutors will not edit your work, they will give you information on how to improve the argument, the structure, the research/evidence and the citations. They may make suggestions for grammar and sentence structure. Video conferencing feedback is available during our business hours. E-tutoring (email) responses will take between 2 and 48 hours (excluding weekends). We look forward to working with you!
