paperonorange_ResizedUBC’s Writing Centre

The UBC Writing Centre offers non-credit courses designed to help UBC students, faculty, and staff, as well as members of the general public, improve their command of English for general interest as well as academic, technical or research purposes.

Writers’ Toolbox

If you need some help working on your writing process, take a moment to see the equipment that’s available in the Writers’ Toolbox.

Here you’ll find specific instruction and exercises addressing diverse areas of writing concerns. You can find answers to the questions you’ve often wondered about. “How do I make my thesis stronger?” “How can I begin my essay in a way that will interest my reader?” “Why doesn’t my essay make sense?” “How can I write a conclusion that does more than reshuffle my thesis?”

Writers’ Workbench

The Workbench is a place where you can work very specifically on the mechanics and structure of your writing. Use this e-mail text-submission tool in conjunction with the many resources available in the Writers’ Toolbox. The Workbench provides a place for you to receive constructive feedback from an experienced writing instructor from the UBC Writing Centre.

The UBC Library

The UBC library provides on-line library tutorials and guides to a variety of topics which will help in your research.
