The SWCP is a UGC-funded project operated at the University of Hong Kong, the City University of
Hong Kong, and Hong Kong Baptist University. The programme provides a one-to-one writing consultation
service in a friendly, relaxing setting to UGC-funded students at any level of study. Trained
undergraduate and postgraduate tutors from a range of disciplines are available to support writers
in any stage of the writing process, and on any type of writing project, including but not limited
to course assignments, personal statements, resumes, and cover letters. Our aim is to help writers
become critical readers of their own work and develop skills for revising their writing autonomously.
You can book a 30-minute consultation session up to two weeks in advance, and we encourage you
to upload your writing at least 2 days before your consultation. Your tutor will highlight
issues in your writing, and discuss with you how to resolve these issues. Our tutors are
also happy to help you in the pre-writing stages of any writing project. Note that your tutor
will not give advice or instructions that would in any way result in the tutor becoming a
co-author of your text. The SWCP is not a proofreading or editing service. Our focus is on
helping you, the writer, make decisions about your writing.
