Join Us for Supplement Writing Workshop!


Many universities, including UBC, SFU, UVic, Ivey, and McMaster have already released their supplemental essay prompts for this year’s application season and the deadlines are fast approaching. Writing is a process and successful applicants often work on these supplemental essays throughout the fall and winter. We know that your schedules are busier than ever before, so we run Writing Workshop all application season long to give you the time and resources you need to successfully complete these essays.

What is Supplement Writing Workshop?

These sessions aim to help students complete the supplemental writing portions of their university and scholarship applications, including essays, personal statements, activities summaries and resumes.

Writing Workshop serves as an accessible introduction to university supplement writing, and students will leave the sessions with an understanding of effective written language use. We accommodate students working on a variety of projects all in the same session, and our writing coaches work personally with students on their unique pieces.

What do students like best about the course?

“I had a lot of time to practice writing my essays and get extremely insightful feedback.”

“The constant editing and help on all of my writing.”

“I was able to get real time feedback and was able to continue to work on my [essays].”

“It was very informative and allowed me to write with immediate feedback. It was a very open place!”

When and where can I attend?
