We offer writing consultations on: research writing ( journal articles, thesis, dissertations, proposals, research reports, grant proposals, etc.).

Schedule an appointment on our booking system. Note your consultation session will take place remotely or on site. During the 60 minute consultation, the consultant will walk you through your piece of writing and give you pointers about how to improve in whatever area of writing you are concerned with. These can include clarity, grammar, argument, coherence, structure and writer’s voice. Please note that this is not an editing service. If editing is required that will be at your own cost.
