CLC Writing Coach

One-on-one writing appointments with our professional Writing Coach can help with planning, idea development, tone, stylistic improvement, and error recognition. Any genre of writing is suitable; however, this is not an editing service and attendees are expected to participate actively in the conversation.

Attendees must bring a printed copy of their work to review during their appointment. Possible writing samples include a draft of an academic assignment, a cover letter, a professional email, etc.

Open to all UBC Sauder students. Appointments are 30 minutes long and will take place in-person in CLC 219.

To register for an appointment, visit your Canvas Calendar, click “Find Appointments,” select “CLC: Online,” and hit submit. Click on each appointment to learn more and register.
