Little Things Mean a Lot: Tips and Tricks for Formatting Your Thesis - 2:00pm

Are you worried about getting your thesis/dissertation into the format required by the Faculty of Graduate Studies? Would you like to know more about how to use the formatting features in Microsoft Word? Research Commons staff will help you with your questions about the nuts and bolts of formatting: page layout, numbering, headings, front matter, and more! This workshop will also cover the basic resources that are available to help you in writing your thesis/dissertation. Graduate students at any stage of the writing process are welcome, but some prior knowledge of Microsoft Word is recommended.

Graduate Student Writing Group - 3:00pm

Welcome to the Graduate Writing Group! Sometimes, feeling motivated to get some writing done doesn’t happen when we’d like it to. Other times, we may be motivated but the words just don’t seem to flow. Have you ever considered writing as a group activity? Surrounding yourself with other similar-minded, or similar-motivated people can be a great support system — even if your thesis topics are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Working in a non-solitary environment allows writers to ask questions, bounce ideas off of one another, feel inspired by others, and take a break from the often isolating nature of graduate writing.

We welcome all graduate students to join in and take advantage of the opportunity to not only write in a supportive environment, but to also feel motivated and accountable for their writing practice. All are welcome to the inclusive space that holds a non-discrimination policy.

This writing group is facilitated by Brooklyn Kemp at the UBC Writing Centre.
