Western's Writing Support Centre is holding its 10th annual one-day conference addressing specific graduate writing concerns. It is an opportunity to learn best writing practices and need-to-know strategies directly from some of Western's most accomplished graduate faculty.
The day begins with a multi-disciplinary professor panel and Q&A. In the afternoon there are four sessions offered, each led by presenters with substantial expertise in the session topic.
The conference is being held in the University Community Centre (UCC) room 146. Beverages will be provided, bring your mug!
You may sign up for as many sessions as you can attend. Registration is required as space is limited.
