Sign Up, Show Up, and Learn Something!

Graphos workshops tackle key writing topics in an accessible, hands-on format.  In these two-hour sessions, workshop participants learn about a key writing strategy, convention, topic, or genre.  You can apply what you learn to your next seminar paper, conference talk, dissertation chapter, article manuscript, fellowship proposal, or job application.

Graphos workshops are offered free of charge, but registration is required.  All McGill graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are eligible to participate.  We regularly add new workshops, so check back often!

Visit our Facebook page where we post updates and links to posts about writing.  


* Contact us if you have any questions about Graphos fellowship writing support for Banting postdoctoral and Vanier doctoral applicants.
