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 simply edit the work.

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