When you arrive to receive writing support, please sign in and mark the "Purpose of Visit" column on our sign-in sheet. This helps us track how many students are using our services and to make plans for future initiatives.

You may discuss your work that's at any stage with a writing instructor. Some of the topics you might discuss, for example, are thinking about ways to get started on an assignment, organizing material, developing ideas, improving your grammar skills and learning more about doing research. We do not proofread your writing, but we will point out sample errors and teach you how to avoid those errors.

Instructors will recommend handouts and exercises that might benefit your writing. You are welcome to look through our extensive collection of handouts to select those that look helpful.

We also recommend that students purchase The Capilano Guide to Writing Assignments, which is produced by English department instructors in consultation with other departments. It is available from the Capilano University Bookstore in a print or pdf version.
