Writing Support

Tired of writing alone? Want to develop a writing routine? Need some writing accountability? Join your peers and an experienced writing tutor for Writing support for Indigenous students. Increase your writing productivity and add an element of structure to your writing sessions by setting a writing goal. You can also receive feedback on your writing from a writing tutor and connect with other students.

Writing support for Indigenous students is limited to 8 students per session. These sessions differ from regular writing appointments. An experienced writing tutor will offer feedback to students. Prepare yourself by identifying your questions, thoughts, and/or, writings to discuss with the writing tutor.


Drop-in support is available in Writing Symbols Lodge (MSC 390Z) Mondays and Thursdays from 12:30PM - 2:00PM.


Writing support is also available online through Zoom. To attend the session through Zoom, please sign up ahead of time by logging on to elevate.ucalgary.ca, choosing “Student Success Centre” from the left side menu, and opening the "Events/Workshops" calendar to find the event listing.
