All Sessions on Zoom Wednesdays (starting Jan 24) from 12:00 - 2:00 PM!
The Multilingual Studio offers a welcoming space for you as a multilingual student to develop your reading, writing and critical thinking skills. It's an opportunity to engage your multilingual abilities in enhancing your understanding of the genres and conventions of academic writing.
You will meet on Wednesdays, beginning January 24, in sessions from 12:00pm to 2:00pm, where you practice reading and writing strategies, get expert advice on how to incorporate effective academic moves in your written work, learn alongside motivated peers, and exchange ideas and learn from each other.

Multilingual Studio Schedule
The focus of some sessions may be slightly modified depending on the audience. Some aspects of the topics will be recursively addressed as essential features of academic writing as relevant. Connections will be made as much as possible/appropriate (depending on the audience) to students’ disciplines, other languages, prior writing experience and knowledge, and interests.
We often think of academic writing conventions as limitations to our writing and of grammar as a series of scary rules about “what-not-to-do.” But academic writing conventions can serve as guidelines in producing an effective piece of writing, and grammar is an awesome tool you can use to write more effective sentences and increase your range of syntactical choices.
Beginning January 24th, come join Snezhana Wednesday's from 12:00-2:00pm for the Writing Centre’s series of Multilingual Studio workshops. The workshops are open to all students who want to learn how to construct sentences that say what you want them to say and how to connect them to produce an effective piece of academic writing.
