We are here to empower you to learn to proofread and edit your writing on your own. We want you to think long term and build your writing skills so you can use them confidently through the rest of your career.
Writing Consultations are available in person. Students can book a session in advance or come during designated drop-in hours. Please see the booking instructions found on the Writing Consultation Sessions page.
Please note that if you do not attend the session after 10 minutes of its start time, the session will no longer be available, and you will need to book another one.
Don’t forget to have a copy of the assignment sheet, rubric and course outline (if applicable), as well as any notes, outlines, or drafts you have completed so far ready to share.
All writers benefit from talking about their writing at different stages and receiving suggestions on their writing from a critical reader. Even accomplished writers face difficulties in the writing process.
Writing Services assists students who are new to academic writing, as well as experienced writers.
Currently all services are available in person. Students can book a session in advance or come during designated drop-in hours.
We offer asynchronous and in-person workshops that focus on different aspects of writing skills development. For more information, please visit the Online Resources page. We also work with faculty to help them support their students in all aspects of their writing.
We are staffed primarily by graduate TAs from a variety of departments at Carleton University. Consultants are given specific training on how to help other writers improve their writing. Our consultants know how to provide support and assistance that is encouraging and non-judgmental.
