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.

Our Graduate Student Writing Communities are facilitated by graduate students from the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication and the UBC Research Commons and are hosted weekly in Koerner Library. Each meeting will include discussion and focused writing time.
