Online Resources

sunny work areaIn addition to 1:1 consultations and workshops, SASS has a number of resources available online to help you.

The Strategies and Topics section offers downloadable PDFs, tools and templates on a wide variety of topics, like time management, academic stress, or presentation skills (and more).

Handouts that cover a variety of writing topics (thesis statements, effective paragraph structure, grammar, etc.) can be downloaded for personal use (please contact us at if you would like to use these resources for a class).

We also have a list of focus and time management tools on the web to help you cope with online (and offline!) distractions. Keep in mind that those links will lead off our website; we are not responsible for the content you find there. Most are free but some require a subscription or one-time purchase.

Our upper-year volunteers, the Peer Learning Assistants, post a weekly blog during the fall and winter terms. Check out our archives for candid, helpful and often funny posts on surviving and thriving as a Queen’s student.

The Assignment Calculator and Thesis Manager can help you manage larger projects and assignment and work towards long-term goals.


We also provide links to other sites that contain helpful information for writers; see here and here.

Check back often for new materials and links!
