Writing Support for Coursework

Have you ever had a great idea, tried to write it down and it just doesn't come out right? Or you work so hard on your essay that you get too close to it and can't tell the difference between brilliant and boring?

We think that collaboration and conversation are crucial tools in the writing process as they help to clarify your ideas or identify your strengths and weaknesses in the structure and argument. We can help you at every stage of the writing process, from interpreting essay questions and developing ideas, to understanding how to reference correctly.

Our drop-in sessions are an opportunity for you to receive individualised feedback on your essay drafts, outlines, arguments and ideas. We can help you to craft arguments, refine your ideas and reflect on your writing. Finding ways to improve your writing allows you to engage your reader and reach your potential as an author. This service is available to all undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and students from other faculties enrolled in Department of Writing Studies Undergraduate Units of Study.

Our Staff and Student Writing Fellows are trained in the pedagogy of academic writing. We can help you better understand your own writing process and develop effective strategies for communicating in the future.

Our writing support service begins in week 4 each semester.
