Write Here, Write Now at Wolfson

Need some help finding some time to work on your writing in a quiet, distraction-free environment? The library offers workshops to provide structured writing time for both undergraduates and graduates.  

Contact Alberto Garcia for more information.

Peer Feedback Workshops

Do you have a piece of writing that you would like some feedback on? From time to time the library offers peer feedback workshops where we will briefly review some principles of good writing and provide students with an opportunity to share a short sample of their work to receive peer support and feedback. These workshops are open to undergraduate and postgraduate students from all disciplines.

Contact Alberto Garcia for more information.

 

Proofreading

Proofreading Service

The library is pleased to announce that we are offering a proofreading service for postgraduate students planning to submit a Master's dissertation or PhD thesis. Our proofreaders can help with issues related to spelling, grammar, word usage, syntax and formatting.

Students will be matched with appropriate proofreaders based on subject, where possible, and are advised to provide as much time as possible prior to their submission deadline.

Contact Alberto Garcia for more information.

 

One-to-one support

Royal Literary Fund Fellow - not available outside term

Whether you’re struggling and stumbling or confidently sure-footed, RLF Writing Fellows make your needs their starting point, providing guidance specific to you. Get detailed feedback from a professional writer on timing, planning, structure, argumentation, register, flow, punctuation, referencing and more.

Why not make an appointment and bring along two copies of something you are working on? You won't receive grades, but many students who work with us soon see their grades improve. During term time you can book a 50-minute appointment. Support is free of charge, independent of college and faculty and confidential. Available to all students and researchers, in all subject areas. It is aimed as much at scientists, engineers and mathematicians as at historians, law students or philosophers. To book an appointment please email Vitali Vitaliev at vitali.vitaliev@rlfeducation.org.uk.
