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.
We are staffed 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.
During the 2020-21 academic year, all of our services are available virtually through Microsoft Teams. We offer asynchronous workshops and synchronous webinars 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.
Writing Services is free of charge to all Carleton University students (e.g. undergraduate, graduate, full-time, part-time, and special students). Our services can also be used by Carleton faculty members.
Writing consultations are available virtually on Microsoft Teams. Please see the booking instructions found on the Writing Consultation Sessions page. If you do not already have access to or are not familiar with using Microsoft Teams through your cmail account please visit Setting Up Microsoft Teams. If you have not joined 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 bring a copy of the assignment sheet and course outline (if applicable), as well as any notes, outlines, or drafts you have completed so far.
Writing Services is currently offering one-on-one Writing Consultation Sessions virtually, via Microsoft Teams. For more information, as well as to view the booking instructions, please visit the Writing Consultation Sessions page.
