Writing Centre

The UPEI Writing Centre provides coaching and support for writing in all disciplines for students, faculty, and staff. Enjoy person-to-person writing help in the comfort and privacy of our Writing Centre Lounge, or make an appointment for online writing support (eTutoring).

We are located in Room 274 in the Robertson Library. It's the bright, glass-walled room at the back of the Learning Commons. Drop in and check out our comfortable and quiet writing lounge!

Appointment information

Appointments are up to 45 minutes long. Please have at hand, either in hard copy or electronically, your assignment instructions and any work you have already completed for the assignment. Our writing tutors are approachable and knowledgeable, and can help you at any stage of the writing process (brainstorming for a topic, drafting a thesis statement, organizing ideas, and the correct way to use sources). While they may provide instruction on grammar and mechanical problems, they do not edit or proofread papers. Because no one becomes a great writer after one appointment, be sure to visit us soon, and visit us often!

To see available person-to-person and eTutoring appointments, and to book an appointment up to two weeks in advance, please register for an account at upei.mywconline.com
