What is Graphos?

Graphos teaches graduate students and postdocs how to become effective scholarly communicators.  Across the disciplines, writing is the common practice that all scholars must master.  Writing is not simply an afterthought—it is the medium in which we do our intellectual work.

What can Graphos do for you?

Graphos offers different ways for graduate students to become more efficient, precise, and effective scholarly communicators.  Some of these are also available to postdoctoral fellows.

  • Courses: 1-credit offerings that complement your degree program.
  • Workshops: focused events on key writing strategies, conventions, topics, and genres.
  • Peer Writing Groups: small clusters of advanced graduate students who meet regularly to share and improve works-in-progress.
  • Tutorial Service: one-on-one sessions to improve your writing skills.  (Offered by the McGill Writing Centre.)

Graphos is an initiative of the McGill Writing Centre in partnership with Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and Teaching and Learning Services.
