What happens in a writing centre tutorial?
You bring in a course assignment at any stage in the process and sit down one-on-one with a writing instructor. He or she will ask you questions about the assignment, may read all or part of your draft and will offer feedback and writing instruction tailored to your assignment, your discipline, and your strengths and weaknesses as a writer.
What should I bring to my writing centre tutorial?
Come to your appointment prepared to talk, think, and yes, write. Bring a printed copy of whatever you have written so far, the instructions for the assignment, any research materials, a pen or pencil to write with, and your brain.
