As a faculty member, you're pulled in many directions. Preparing lectures. Grading student work. Supervising graduate students. Research. Service. Meetings. It's tough to find time to write! The Writing and Communication Centre can help you to reach your writing goals.
At the Writing and Communication Centre, we support faculty members as writers, whether they're working on books, journal articles, grant proposals, or any other project. We offer 50-minute consultations that give you a chance to talk to our faculty support specialists about your work at any stage of the writing process. Here are some examples of the ways we can support faculty writers at many stages of the writing process:
- Provide a sounding board as you plan and outline
- Help you experience your draft the way a reader might
- Facilitate goal-setting and offer coaching
- Consult on the structure, organization, or mechanics of your work
If you would like to discuss your project please email one of the following people to set up a consultation. Please note that we are booking faculty consultations two to three weeks ahead.
Dr. Nadine Fladd email@example.com
Dr. Clare Bermingham firstname.lastname@example.org
Faculty are welcome to participate in the WCC’s Writing Cafés and #WaterlooWrites writing groups.
As of June 30th, the University of Waterloo has suspended the mask requirement on campus. WCC staff will wear masks for in-person services by default or by request, and we encourage you to continue to wear a tight-fitting, well-constructed mask and maintain your distance from others if you feel it is the right choice for you. The Writing and Communication Centre is pleased to offer all of our programming both virtually and in-person this term.
