We also offer free 25-minute one-to-one sessions with a writing advisor at our Drop-In Centre in the D.B. Weldon Library. We can offer quick advice for any of your writing concerns or questions.
No appointments are necessary, though the services are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure a session, especially during busy periods in November and March, come to the Drop-In Centre in Weldon Room 102A (beside Argo Tea Café) shortly before the sign-up sheets are posted at 10:30am.
Students are allowed one writing session with a writing advisor per day: either a drop-in session at Weldon Library or a booked appointment at our main centre in Western Student Services Building (WSS4130).
