The Writing Lab

The Writing Lab is a free service available to all AlgomaU registered students in any discipline and year of study. Students make individual appointments to meet with the Writing Lab Instructor to get help with planning, drafting, researching, and referencing throughout the writing process.

The Appointment Request Form is open to take weekly requests during the semester until the queue is full, at which point the Form will re-open for new requests the following week. Once you submit your request, the Form is put in a queue for me to review; expect up to 3 business days before receiving feedback (5 business days during mid-terms and last week of classes). *Requests for appointments on the same day the assignment is due cannot be guaranteed.*

Reminder: You must be signed into Google using your Algoma U ID to access the Form.

The Writing Lab will be completely virtual. Students will submit their assignments using the Google Form and can expect a response in 3 business days.

The Writing Lab is open May 10th until July 28th for the Spring/Summer 2022 semester. Limited in-person appointments are offered on Thursdays only outside the Writing Lab office in the Wishart Library. If you want to book an in-person appointment, email to find a time once you have submitted your Appointment Request Form.

Reminder: You must be signed into Google using your Algoma U ID to access the Form.

For questions about how the Writing Lab can help you and how to reach me, please email Prof. Marissa Ross, Writing Lab Instructor.
