GCAC has moved online! Workshops, courses, and writing support

GCAC Writing Centre

The GCAC Writing Centre is now offering online individualized one-on-one synchronous writing support through appointments booked though our website. During these appointments, you’ll meet with a writing consultant, who will work with you using audio/video, chat and a document-sharing whiteboard area. Full details on how to book an appointment are on our website.

Something new to help you with your writing: #GCACwrites

During this time of physical isolation, GCAC would like you to come and write with us! We’ll be having two Twitter Write Along sessions each week: Mondays, 2:00-4:00 and Thursdays, 10:00-12:00. Please feel free to join @UofTGCAC by using the hashtag #GCACWrites. These sessions will be hosted by Rachael Cayley, who will also be available to answer your writing questions. All you need to do is join us on Twitter with the hashtag. We’ll find out who is joining us and we’ll set our writing goals before writing for two hours, in 30 minute blocks. Once our two hours are up, Rachael will be happy to answer any questions about graduate writing. 

Up to date information about what’s on at GCAC can always be found on our website
