About This Service

The Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication is here to support all writers at UBC. Because of projects from first-year papers to lab reports to creative writing projects to dissertations, this is a group that includes everyone – whether or not you specifically identify as a writer (or whether you want to!). The services we offer are based in the belief that everyone has a unique perspective to bring to the scholarly conversation, and our mission is to support this by working cooperatively with you to enhance your understanding of academic genres and discourse, your voice(s) as writers, and their ability to write efficiently and appropriately for all types of assignments and purposes.
