The Centre for Writers provides a limited number of spaces in Guided Writing Instruction Groups for international graduate students. The groups allow students to hone their writing skills with the help of an experienced C4W facilitator who is trained to work specifically with international students. These groups enable international students to build on the content knowledge they already have and to acquire excellent writing, reading, and editing skills that will translate not only into better theses/dissertations, but also into better job opportunities, and successful careers.
Each group accepts 10 students. Guided Writing Instruction Groups meet for two hours every week throughout the semester. Each session will offer both writing skills instruction and writing practice on the participants’ own writing projects. The workload of our groups is equivalent to a 1-credit course. Students do not receive course credit, but they may be able to count their participation toward their graduate professional development requirements.
Participants will also have the opportunity to receive feedback on their own ongoing writing projects such as theses, dissertations, essays, presentations, articles, and proposals.
