Writing advice and text feedback

We are at your side

Individual writing advice

  • We offer consultations via video, telephone or on site.
    Locations: Hardenbergstr. 34 or Thielallee 38 
  • The best way to make an appointment is to use our Contact form or write us an email schreibberatung@stw.berlin.
    Please state the following: concern, university, telephone number and which format (video, telephone or on-site consultation) you would like.
  • We will then contact you to suggest an appointment.
  • If you have confirmed an appointment, we will send you a link to a Webex conference in good time or we will call you at the agreed time or we will pick you up at the agreed meeting point. 
  • A consultation usually lasts a maximum of 45 minutes. If necessary, we will be happy to arrange follow-up appointments.
  • No topic is too “small” for consultation with our writing tutors.

    Free, low-threshold and at eye level, now make an appointment!

    Our offer is for students at Berlin universities who are studying for a bachelor's degree, master's degree or state examination.

Text feedback

Talking about a specific excerpt from your term paper or thesis can be very helpful.
If you would like feedback on a text excerpt (max. 5 pages), send us the text in the attachment (as a doc file, font size 12 pt, line spacing 1,5, margin 2 cm) and the Questionnaire text feedback an schreibberatung@stw.berlin.

As part of text feedback you will receive:

  • benevolent and honest feedback from a writing didactic perspective,
  • Pointers to what is already working well in your text (excerpt),
  • feedback on what is currently unclear when reading,
  • our written comments via email,
  • the opportunity to make an appointment for a meeting.

Writing advice before text feedback can be particularly useful if you have not had any advice from us before.
