Writing Skills

Let's face it - writing is hard because it's complicated. It involves a wide range of skills - critical, organizational, stylistic, and editorial. We all bring different strengths to the table; we all have weaknesses.

That's why writing support at the Student Success Centre is personalized.

It’s based on understanding your particular needs, and working with you to develop skills that will help you at university – and in the long run. 

We offer small, writing-intensive workshops to undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students that focus not only on improving your writing skills, but on preparing specialized documents and using sources correctly.
