This summer, the Writing and Communication Centre embarked on a campaign to promote reading for enjoyment. Often our lives get too busy to do things just for fun. It’s understandable. Life gets hectic and tasks pile up; however, it’s extremely important to take time for yourself just because you can. We need to make more time for enjoyment, and what’s a better time than summer? 

The Writing Centre and the Book Store invite you to attend a book launch and reception for Performing Antiracist Pedagogy in Rhetoric, Writing, and Communication, edited by Dr. Frankie Condon (English Language and Literature) and Dr. Vershawn Young (Drama and Speech Communication).

Please join us for a discussion and refreshments.

What I Do When You Don't Come To Drop-Ins

Drop-in hours at the libraries are best spent helping students with their assignments. What I like most about being a tutor is that I am constantly reminded that I have an entire work term of no homework. I’m living in the world of education’s liminal space: sitting on the sidelines not being affected!

Did you miss attending our Open House on September 16? You missed some great food, excellent information, and having some fun with words. We asked our visitors to tell us about their writing habits on our Writing Centre mural. Below are some samples of what was written.

Welcome to the UWaterloo Writing Centre!

This is our blog – welcome. We are literally buzzing in our seats anticipating all of the writing we will have to do to keep everything here looking fresh. Our co-ops are English professionals so they don’t mind.
