CWSC MONTHLY | April 6, 2022

The Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication (CWSC) is an educational support unit at UBC Vancouver. The CWSC draws on evidence-based research to design and deliver writing-focused programming for all community members.


Undergraduate Consultations | Graduate Consultations
Two formats of online consultation are available: In Person and Written Feedback. All students at UBC are invited to sign up for a peer-to-peer conversation about their writing. In Person Writing Consultations take place in the Writing Room on the third floor of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (1961 East Mall). We ask you to appear at the Writing Room no earlier than 5 minutes prior to your appointment time.

In Person Writing Consultation

February 7th, 2022 – April 13th, 2022
Monday, Wednesday, Friday, 10am – 6pm

Written Feedback Writing Consultation

Jan 17th, 2022 – Apr 14th, 2022

Writing consultations resume May 24, 2022 until August 12, 2022. Consultations will be bookable one week in advance.

Postdoctoral Fellows | Faculty and Staff
Patty Kelly, Program Manager, who holds a doctorate in Writing and Discourse Studies, is available for one-on-one writing consultations with postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and staff.


The CWSC works with 14 graduate students from across the disciplines. This month we are introducing two of the peer Writing Consultants, Courtney and Ben:


Courtney is a master’s student and SSHRC recipient in the Department of English. She received her Bachelor of Arts with a double major in English and Psychology from MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta. Her research interests lie primarily in contemporary literature and metafiction.


Ben is a master’s student in the department of English Language & Literatures. He currently holds a BA honours degree from SFU in Sociology and English. His current research interests include discourse analysis, Indigenous studies, trauma, and 20th century philosophy (post-structuralism, deconstruction, ordinary language, psychoanalysis, and media theory).
