Writing Development

Studying at the University of Lincoln? We can help you achieve your potential by improving your writing skills.

How we can help you

All University of Lincoln students can use Writing Development, so please email us if you'd like help.

Due to covid-19, from 24 March we are offering email help or we can arrange a time to talk to you via MS Teams.

How to contact us 
  • Please email us using your student email account 
  • Our email address is writingdev@lincoln.ac.uk
  • Please tell us what course you're doing and what year you're in
  • You are welcome to attach a draft of your work, telling us what aspect you'd like us to help you with
  • We can help at any stage of the writing process, so you don't need to attach a finished draft.

 

 

 

We can help you with:
  • Understanding and planning your assignment
  • Assignment structure and paragraph structure
  • Academic argument and critical thinking
  • Introductions and conclusions
  • Strategies for editing and proof-reading
You can help by:
  • Using MS Word's grammar checker and spelling checker before you ask us to look at your work
What we don't do:
  • We can't edit or proof-read your work for you, but we can teach you strategies so you can edit and proof-read your own work
  • We can't help with the subject content of your assignment
  • We can't help with finding information or referencing, instead you should contact your Academic Subject Librarian.
