Student getting help at the writing support desk

About the Writing Support Desk

The Writing Support Desk is located on the main floor of Leddy Library and is a service that provides students with help regarding various aspects of their academic writing, including

  • interpreting assignment prompts

  • constructing strong theses and arguments

  • grammar, punctuation, and syntax problems

  • analyzing and integrating sources

  • citing and referencing

Students should note that the WSD is not a proofreading service. Though we will examine as much of a sample of writing as we can in the space of a one-on-one consultation, our goal is to teach students how to improve their writing, not to edit the work.

Students can email their work in advance of their appointments to (.docx or .doc formats only please).

If you require accommodations for a disability, please contact the Writing Support Desk at or 519.253.3000 ext. 3472.
