Group sessions

Online Peer Review Workshops

From time to time, we offer workshops where we 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 Jr for more information.



New Proofreading Service

The library is pleased to announce that we are now offering a proofreading service for postgraduate students who need help revising their work with issues related to spelling, grammar, work 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 Jr 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. To book a 50-minute appointment, either in person at Magdalene College on Mondays or online on Tuesdays, email Christopher Woodall. 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.

Please note that you must

  • be a current student at Wolfson College 
  • resident in the UK at the time of the appointment

- these are requirements of the body that funds this service.

Christopher Woodall, Royal Literary Fund Fellow, is a published and professional author.  See for more information. To find out more about the service he offers, watch this video.

Please note that RLF Writing Fellows do not undertake proofreading or EAP tuition.
