Peer Writing Mentors

Peer Writing Mentors are UON students here to provide you with advice on developing your writing skills. Bring along a hard copy of your writing, the assignment question and the marking criteria and the Peer Writing Mentors can:

  • Give you advice about study skills, writing and referencing.
  • Offer general feedback about your writing or discuss ideas and concerns with you about your work.
  • Show you strategies for how to do something (e.g. use a referencing style, analyse a question and interpret marking criteria, structure an essay, use a writing or note taking planner) .
  • Provide you with referral to other services, if we can’t help you.

Writing mentors can't correct your work but can provide advice on areas that may need improvement.
