Graduate Student Writing Communities

Participating in a writing community can help to keep you motivated whether you are working on your thesis, dissertation or another intensive graduate level writing project.

Join fellow graduate students to work on your writing goals, share best practices, and focus on your writing project for almost 2 hours of uninterrupted writing time. Our Graduate Student Writing Communities are facilitated by graduate students from the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication and the UBC Research Commons staff teams and are hosted weekly in the Koerner Library, Room 216.

Tuesdays (weekly) 2-4 pm: re-starting on January 16


Wednesdays (weekly) 5-7 pm: re-starting on January 17


Note: Graduate Student Writing Communities are most beneficial if you commit to participating regularly and are able to attend the weekly meetings for the duration of the term.
