UC Writing Centre

Students may now book appointments for fall 2015. (Note: incoming students may make an appointment in September to go over a high school essay.)

If you're registered at University College, you have access to free one-on-one appointments at the UC Writing Centre. Our highly trained instructors will consult with you individually on course assignments at any stage of the writing process and in any subject. Other undergraduate students enrolled in University College program courses may bring in work in those courses.

If you have never had a one-on-one appointment at  the UC Writing Centre, please read up on how to use us.


The UC Writing Centre is located in the UC Library (Laidlaw Wing, 2nd floor, northeast corner).

UC and UC program students interested in creative fiction and non-fiction may book an appointment with this year's Barker Fairley Distinguished Visitor, award-winning writer Miriam Toews.

Stay tuned for two exciting workshops in October on writing in medicine and the health sciences and writing in the field of public policy. These workshops are part of the UC Writing Centre's annual Real-World Writing Genres series. Details on this website soon. 

UC students seeking admission to a professional or graduate school may seek help on admissions letters. Learn more about our one-on-one policies.
