The Writing Centre’s Return to the Fall/Winter 2022-23 School Year

The Writing Centre is looking forward to delivering our services in a hybrid method starting this September!

Monday through Thursday, our one-to-one appointments and drop-in services will be delivered on-campus while on Friday and Saturday, the Writing Centre will be fully remote. Throughout the year, there will also be some limited in-person events.

With this hybrid return to school plan, many writing instructors are available for either in-person or remote appointments using the Writing Centre software, student’s choice! Check the schedule for details!

For those who plan on visiting the Writing Centre in person, we strongly recommend you wear a good-quality mask.

Our Fall lineup includes 7 unique workshops which dive into specific aspects of writing. We are proud to introduce our newest addition which is the Anti-Racist Writing workshop.

Here’s the full list:

  • Analyze Your Assignment (Sept. 22 and Nov 1)
  • Construct an Argument (Sept. 29 – Nov. 10)
  • Research Methods (Oct. 6 and Nov. 10)
  • Anti-Racist Writing (Oct. 20 and Nov. 24)
  • Organize your Draft (Oct. 25 and Nov. 22)
  • Revise your sentences (Oct. 27 and Dec. 1)

Each workshop will repeat twice in the Fall term. The full schedule can be found online on our workshops page.

Other than our workshops, we offer additional programs for students who want to work on specific writing skills while also getting involved with the York community.

These Writing Centre programs include:

  • Get WRIT Live! Podcast: Get WRIT Live! is the Writing Centre’s official podcast where Professor Rich Shivener and his audience discuss all things writing on a YouTube live stream.
  • Grammar On! Workshop Series: This no-fear grammar series teaches students how to feel more confident making beautiful sentences that say what you want to say about them!
  • Multilingual Studio: The Studio is a safe and collaborative space where multilingual students meet weekly to improve their reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. Registration required.
  • PhD Writers Café: The Café is open to LA&PS graduate students who want writing support on their dissertations and a place to engage with other graduate students. Registration required.

These special programs typically run once a week and provides a space where students can think critically about writing. For more information about these programs and which days they run, please refer to the Writing Centre website!


After being fully remote for two years, the Writing Centre is excited to provide both remote and on-campus options to York students! Our services are free and open to students from all disciplines, multilingual speakers, graduate learners, and those with academic accommodations. To book a tutoring session please visit our one-to-one appointment page.
