The Writing Centre can help you write more clearly, logically, and effectively. They offer:
Visit The Writing Centre in Fir 402 or call 604.984.4956 or local 495.
Revising your assignment immediately after writing it doesn't allow you to see your mistakes and ambiguities as clearly as you would be able to after some time away. Plan to leave at least 24 hours, and more if you can, between writing and revising.
Once you come back to your work, review one aspect of your essay at a time. Trying to catch everything in one pass will only lead to missed edits.
After you are satisfied with your structure, move on to the nuts & bolts - vocabulary and grammar.
After nailing down the vocabulary and grammar, it's time to work on the style of your essay.
