Welcome to the McGill Writing Centre!

The McGill Writing Centre was established in 2010 to reflect a new approach to centralize writing courses and other resources, then scattered across several Faculties and Schools, into a single academic department staffed by specialists in the field of writing pedagogy.

As the University's central resource for writing and communication, we offer a compelling slate of credit courses and non-credit activities that attract undergraduate and graduate students from across the disciplines as well as a writing tutorial service.

Students in our courses and non-credit activities report that they learn essential skills, strategies, and techniques that help them succeed both at university and beyond the Roddick Gates.
