Refine your academic writing skills or learn to write for a specific professional audience with courses offered by the McGill Writing Centre (MWC). As a student in one of the MWC’s courses or workshops, you'll learn essential skills, strategies, and techniques that will help you to succeed both at university and in any number of professions.
Located in the McLennan-Redpath Library, the McGill Writing Centre (MWC) is the University's central resource for written communication. The Centre offers credit courses in academic and professional writing and a tutorial service open to all McGill students and postdocs. In addition, the Centre offers a number of specialized writing courses open to the public.
The McGill Writing Centre Tutorial Service
The McGill Writing Centre Tutorial Service provides writing support for all students at the downtown campus. Our tutors will work with you at any stage of the writing process, from outlining to final revision, providing guidance on how to:
organize your ideas
express yourself clearly
make convincing arguments
reach the right audience
identify and eliminate common grammatical errors
Please note that the Tutorial Service is not a drop-off proofreading and editing service. Accordingly, tutors will not “correct” your draft assignments. Rather, tutors will model structurally and grammatically coherent sentences and paragraphs with a view to empowering you to learn how to write clear, concise, and engaging prose.
For general inquiries about the tutorial service, please send an email to the coordinator at mwctutorial [at] mcgill.ca.
