Welcome to the Mount Writing Centre

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

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.
