Welcome to the Mount Writing Centre

EMF 203 (Library, main level) | bookings: writing@msvu.ca or Bookings

Our summer tutors are here for conversations to support your academic work and your development as a writer, as well as your grant or program applications. You can book appointments here.

Experienced tutors at the Writing Centre help students with academic, professional, or creative written work for undergraduate and graduate programs. This includes all stages of essay and research papers as well as slides, interview questions, creative projects, and grant or program applications. Whether you’re fresh out of high school, just arrived from overseas, or coming back to school after several years: our tutors will help you meet your writing goals.

Tutors discuss, read, suggest, and make changes with you: you work together on the text: they won’t simply correct papers for you. Our aim is to help you learn to do these tasks yourself — and you will.

Book an appointment:

The Writing Centre offers bookable appointment hours as a free service for all Mount students. You can book single or multiple appointments — up to a limit of 1 booked appointment per week per Mount student (any overbookings may be deleted).

Your appointment reminder contains a link to MS Teams for a shared meeting space. Can’t see it? No problem: your tutor will contact you at the appointment time, to guide you:
