The Writing Centre is a free facility for all Memorial University undergraduate and graduate students who want help with their writing. Our main office is on the second floor of the Science Building, in room SN2053. We also have a desk at The Commons (for undergraduate students only).

The Writing Centre provides one-on-one tutorials.  Sessions last for 45 minutes.  Our tutors can help students at every stage of the writing process. They can help with brainstorming, revisions, style, and more. We ask students to please print off a copy of the paper prior to the session and to bring any assignment information your professor has given you.

Our Mandate

The Writing Centre’s mandate is to help Memorial University students become better writers and critical thinkers. We are a peer tutoring centre, which means that all of our tutors are university students trained as writing tutors. Undergraduate tutors work with undergraduate students, and graduate tutors work with graduate students.

Drop-in Sessions

Drop-in sessions are available for undergraduate students in SN2053. The sessions are on a first-come, first-served basis.    

Tutors no longer conduct sessions on laptops. Please bring a hard copy of your work to your session. Exemptions to this policy are granted by the Director where special circumstances exist.
