Services

We work with MacEwan students in all programs, in all years of study, and at any stage of the writing process.

Tutors can support you in planning and outlining your essay, answer questions that arise while you’re writing, or review a draft of your paper and provide feedback on ways to revise and improve your writing and citation.

The Writing Centre is located in the Library, room 6-202. Please visit the Library’s Hours of Operation to plan your visit. The Writing Centre is closed on weekends and statutory holidays.

Written Feedback

Our peer writing tutors provide written feedback on your writing. Submit your paper online, and within 1-3 business days you will receive feedback. We recommend students submit a minimum of 4 business days before their due date, if possible. Our tutors do not work over weekends or statutory holidays, so please plan accordingly and submit well in advance of your due date! 

Your paper does not have to be finished: you can submit a few paragraphs or a draft in progress.

Tutors are typically able to comment on 2-3 areas of improvement for each submission, but students can resubmit their work up to two times for more feedback after making revisions. Tutors may limit feedback to five pages in longer papers.
