Foundation Writing Group

The Foundation Writing Group theme this year is: "Multilingualism: Untangle your confusion about academic writing - Harmonizing your multilingual voices in writing"

Was writing your Midterm essay a tiring, frustrating, and confusing process?

Are you trying to grasp what everybody in art school means when they say “writing goes hand in hand with artmaking?”

Didn’t you apply to art school so that you could, well, make art? But instead you're just writing about art?

If you answer YES to any of these questions, you’re not alone!

We are happy to invite you to the annual Foundation Writing Group with the theme Multilingualism to better understand and practice Foundation year writing alongside other Foundation students.

Whatever language you speak, we know that it’s never easy to speak up when you’re in a new place alone. You might need some help to navigate this new online academic environment.

Hosted by Thu, a multilingual peer tutor at the Writing Centre, this group is where you can raise questions you’re too afraid to ask in class, answer other people’s questions, or simply just to check in with other Foundation students about their writing process.

Come in with questions, drafts, plans, ambitions, and humour!

If you have any questions, please e-mail writingcentre@ecuad.ca
