Writing Support

Trinity College Writing Centre

Trinity College’s Writing Centre can advise you on how to produce a great paper, including confidential one-on-one tutoring in essay writing for course assignments, and objectively review your essay. The Writing Centre provides instruction in, and objective criticism of, your written course assignments in any discipline.

The staff won’t write your paper for you, or tell you what to say. But they can advise on such matters as focus, organization, argumentation, documentation, grammar and style. Their aim is to help you improve your ability to write clearly, coherently, logically and persuasively. They will work with you on any kind of writing assignment (essays, book reviews, reports, including science reports) at any stage of development, from conceptualization to final draft.

Consultations for the Fall 2020 & Winter 2021 session with the Writing Centre will take place online. We look forward to meeting you and working with you to improve your writing.  To make an online appointment, go to THIS WEBSITE.
