Writing Centre Handouts

The handouts used by our writing tutors cover a wide range of topics, including general essay writing, business writing, writing in the sciences, and various style guides used in respective disciplines. Key grammar handouts are also available, as well as guidelines for critical reading and analysis, writing graduate school and scholarship applications, and how to undertake academic research for a given writing assignment. All handouts are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

Read our handouts online, or download the PDFs to keep as references. Some of these have worksheets to print and fill out by hand. Several sections have too many handouts to fit neatly on the screen; use the arrows to move lefthand right and see more.
