About the Writing Lab
The Writing Lab is for students of the Faculty of Humanities in Leiden and The Hague.
The Writing Lab works with student tutors. They have completed a special training, focusing among other things on the analysis of writing and text problems and giving feedback. They help you improve your academic writing skills in the way that is most pleasant or most useful for you. Whether you get stuck because working from home is tough, whether you would like to discuss your text to sharpen your argumentation, whether you want to improve your paper from a 5 to a 6 or whether you want to improve it from an 8 to a 9: everyone is welcome!
During an individual conversation of 45 minutes, you can zoom in on exactly what you want help with. We often help students to improve the research question, structure, argumentation and/or writing style of a text, but we can also help them with matters such as making a good planning or cultivating writing discipline. The writing coach will not judge the content of the text and will not correct spelling, grammar or annotation.
