Open to all Warwick students who wish to obtain support for writing difficulties via email.
You may send a Word attachment no longer than 250 words (one page) in order to illustrate your enquiry, if necessary.
Submitting an enquiry/request for advice:
It is essential that you first read the available online material provided by Warwick Academic Writing e-learning resource
Your enquiry must have a precise subject, such as:
“I have a problem with my style/vocabulary/etc, and here is a passage to exemplify…”
“How can I improve transition between ideas or paragraphs?”
“How do I improve my narrative based on this example…?”
You must also include:
- Your name and student number
- Year of study/ course level (UG, masters, PhD).
NB: You will not receive a reply unless you provide this information!
Please do NOT submit generic questions, such as:
“How can I improve my writing?”
“How do I write a lit review?”
“How do I structure my essay?”
Please note that your question (and our response) may be logged, anonymously, onto the Warwick Academic Writing e-learning resource so that other students may benefit also.
This service does NOT revise/proofread your writing.
- You are, of course, very welcome to email samples of your writing to exemplify your difficulties. However, no proofreading will be offered, nor will your essay / assignment be read and revised before submission.
- We cannot advise you on matters relating to content (i.e. that of your discipline).
- We do not provide English language tuition. For that, please see Centre for Applied Linguistics: Learning English.
- This is not a referral service. Please read the Academic Writing programme which lists all available sources for Academic Writing at Warwick and, indeed, elsewhere online.
