Academic Writing Consultancy

If you would like to improve your planning and writing skills or receive feedback on your work, you can visit the weekly writing consultancy at the Mannheim University Library.

The writing consultancy is open to students of all disciplines of the University of Mannheim. We offer support at every stage of your writing, from brainstorming to your final draft – no matter whether you are working on a term paper or your bachelor’s or master's thesis. The sessions are held in German or English.


You can contact the team of the writing consultation with an e-mail to schreibberatung(at) We will be happy to address your questions via e-mail or video conference. If you would like to discuss a text, please send it in advance if possible.

We provide you with useful self-help guidance, for example, regarding the following questions:

  • How do I organize my writing task?
  • How do I start writing?
  • How do I narrow down my topic?
  • How do I broaden my topic if it seems to be too limited?
  • How do I use sources and cite them correctly?
  • What do I do if I tread water and do not come to terms with my project?
  • How do I revise my text?
