Online writing review
HELPS provides an opportunity to send written feedback on your draft via email.
Feedback may include advice on:
- structure and argument
- style and expression
- Students will not be able to interact with advisor during the online writing review session.
- Word limit of 2000 words maximum.
- We are not able to ‘fix’ or ‘rewrite’ your draft. Instead we will show you how you can learn to do it yourself.
- We cannot help you with the subject content nor indicate your mark or grade.
