Need help with your writing?

If so, you should log-on to the Postgraduate Online Writing Clinic.  This is a forum which gives postgraduate students the chance to ask questions about any aspect of academic writing.

The live writing clinic is an online, cross-faculty resource for postgraduate students at the University of Manchester. It is a ‘drop in’ facility which allows you to ask any questions you might have regarding academic writing.

The first few minutes of each clinic will be a brief review of the main points of one topic from the Blackboard writing materials. The clinic will then be open for questions on any topic related to academic writing.

To access the on-line clinic, follow the link below on the dates and times indicated (you will need to run the ‘setup wizard’ the first time you use the clinic):

Select the icon ‘Online Writing Clinic’. This will take you into the Wimba classroom and you should then select ‘Participant Login’.
Please note: you will need headphones to listen to the clinic.

The clinics will take place between 12.30pm-1.30pm on Wednesdays.
There will be a clinic each Wednesday from 13th October until Wednesday 15th December (except Wednesday 27th October).

Please be aware of the following:

  • Questions will be answered in the order that they are posted.
  • The clinic will end at 1.30pm. Questions will be accepted up to 1.25pm.
  • This is a University-wide resource and so the guidance and feedback given will be generic and not subject/School specific.
  • This is not an online proofreading service.

If you have any questions regarding the online clinic, please email:
