Graduate Students - Some Information & Advice!

The Writing Centre is a free, appointment-based facility for all Memorial University students who want help with their writing. Staffed by a director and university students trained as writing tutors, its mandate is to help students become better writers and critical thinkers.

An increasing number of graduate students are making use of the centre--some to refresh themselves on mechanics and elements of style they have not used for a while, others to obtain guidance and feedback on papers and articles they are preparing, and still others to work on portions of their theses. The centre also assists graduate students with paper/project proposals, application letters, personal statements and extrance-exam preparation.

Please note, however, that we do NOT provide an editing service. We strive, rather, to help you develop strategies with which you yourself can improve your writing. Please note, further, that we generally give only one appointment per week to graduate-level students

To make an appointment, drop by the Writing Centre in room SN2053, call us at 864-3168, or email Diane Ennis at Please specify that you are a graduate student.
