The last few weeks of the semester can be stressful: final assignments need to be completed, time is running out, and the idea of writing those first words or polishing that final draft can seem overwhelming. Help is on the way! The McGill Writing Centre’s “Crunch-Time” workshops are designed to teach you fundamental skills and strategies that can transform your approach to writing, improve your ability to organize and express your ideas, and enrich your understanding of how to use grammatical forms to make your writing clear, lively, and engaging.
