Where can I go to get my work proofread and edited?
Students can get writing help at the Learning Commons or Writing Centre. However, neither offer proofreading services. The help you will receive is beneficial and will help with the improvement of paper.
Students can get quick (about 15 minutes or less) writing assistance in the Learning Commons Hub on the 2nd floor of Scott Library. Drop-in writing help is provided by writing instructors from the Writing Department (Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies). They can help you with starting an assignment, developing a thesis, writing analytically, considering your audience’s expectations, and organizing and structuring your essay. However, as mentioned, writing instructors will not edit your papers.
Most of the writing instructional sessions are by appointment at the Writing Center in the Ross Building S311, but we do offer a number of drop-in sessions. These sessions are 15 minutes in length and are suitable for dealing with one or two specific questions. Most of our drop-in sessions take place in 311 South Ross Building, but are also offered for quick questions in the Learning Commons, Scott Library. See this link for updated dates and times for drop in hours http://learningcommons.yorku.ca/ No appointment necessary.
If you require more in-depth writing help, consult the list of writing support centres at York for more information.
