The Writing Centre

Find Us

Fountain Campus: We are in S403 (Seeds Building). Red pencils point the way from the North Block entrance (by the Print Shop on Granville) or from the North Side of the Student Lounge.

A little hyperbole: we have yet to save any lives, but we can make a big difference! Our friendly and knowledgeable tutors can help you think through any stage of your writing assignments, in any year of your study. We can help with:

• brainstorming

• researching

• formulating a thesis

• explaining, organizing, and connecting your points

• grammar, spelling, punctuation

• English as another language

• clarity and focus in your writing

• citations and documentation of sources

• developing your voice as a confident writer
