Mount Writing Centre

EMF 205 (Library, main level) ●


Experienced tutors at the Writing Centre help students in with all academic written work -- including presentations, slides, speeches, and posters, as well as all stages of research papers for both undergraduate and graduate levels. Whether you're fresh out of high school, just arrived from overseas, or going back to school after many years away: we can help.

  • The Centre offers bookable appointment hours on weekdays and weekends, as a free service for all Mount students, faculty, and staff -- for academic, creative, and professional writing. 
  • In addition to single appointments, you can book regular, repeat appointments in the same time slot all term.
  • Didn't book? No problem! We offer a Friday morning drop-in (Fall & Winter terms, 10 - 1).

  • The Centre is open for all academic terms, including Summer Sessions (closed between terms).

  • Our tutors edit and proofread with you (we don't correct your papers for you.) Our aim is to help you learn to do these tasks yourself.

                 Students: to book an appointment, call (902) 457-6567 or email writing
