Writing tutoring

If you need support in writing academic texts, you can get it from the Mid Sweden University writing tutors.

Writing tutoring is intended to help you further develop your writing and should therefore be considered as a complement to the support given by teachers and supervisors (rather than a quick fix for writing assignments).

We can help you with:

  • finding a suitable academic style (avoiding colloquialisms or unnecessarily complicated language).
  • sorting out language matters regarding for example grammar and punctuation.
  • forming coherent sentences and paragraphs.

 
What we cannot help you with:

  • Feedback on topic or content.
  • Proofreading or corrections of the text.

Drop-in, students

Monday–Friday during term at 13.00–14.30 there is an open writing tutoring drop-in at the University Library on both campuses, in the Academic Resource Centre (Studieverkstaden). Please note that as of March 16, this drop-in tutorial is only available online through Zoom due to the Corona virus. Links to the Zoom Rooms can be found on this page.
