Home > The Writing Centre / English Writing Proficiency > Writing Centre Consultation Instructions

IMPORTANT! Read the instructions before booking your consultation.

Writing Centre consultations are given online using Microsoft Teams and in-person in the Library Learning Commons. Each student is allowed two appointments per week.

The appointments are given in 45-minute blocks to allow for some buffer time between appointments. Expect to spend 30 to 40 minutes with your writing consultant. Be ready to explain the requirements of your assignment to her.

Remember, your writing consultant may not be able to review your text completely. However, she will be able to give you some guidance as to how to edit the rest of it on your own.

Any questions? comments? suggestions? Email the Coordinator at ewpchair@ubishops.ca

Online Instructions:

  1. Make an appointment on our booking site using your full name (as it appears on BU documents) and Bishop’s email address.
  2. Please do a spelling and grammar check on your text before your appointment to save time.
  3. Have your Word document ready to upload to Teams* before your appointment.
    *If you do not already have Teams on your device, you must download Microsoft Teams using your Bishop’s email.
  4. Your writing consultant will video call you on Teams within a few minutes of your scheduled appointment time.
  5. If you do not respond to the call, you can video call your writing consultant back as long as there is at least 15 minutes left in your appointment.
  6. If you experience technical difficulties, your writing consultant will determine the best solution to getting your paper reviewed.
