Academic writing is an integral part of learning at a university. Therefore, the goal of the Write Site is to support you to become an independent, academic writer and editor of your own work.
Via the Writing Coach Sumbission Dropbox, you can submit a current assignment, usually an essay, to a Write Site coach and receive formative feedback in one or more of the following areas: organization (e.g. use of transitions, paragraph coherence, unity, and development), grammar (e.g. correct sentence structure, verb tense, and pronoun use), mechanics (e.g. correct punctuation and capitalization), style (e.g. diction and audience considerations), and/or content (e.g. critical thinking, writing process, pre-writing techniques). You will receive up to 5 pages or 25 comments on each submission. Feedback will NOT be given on course content. For more information on feedback guidelines, please refer to the Marking Guide.
You should submit each assignment only once. The Write Site coach will indicate patterns of errors and make suggestions for online resources and practice. You will be asked to review the feedback and use that knowledge to find other, similar types of errors and edit the document. At all times, authorship remains with you. If you are having difficulty incorporating the coach’s feedback, you may be asked to do a RealTime coaching session or you may be referred to a writing course.
