Writing is listed as an essential skill by the Government of Canada's Office of Literacy and Essential Skills. Writing is required for all jobs and throughout daily life. NSCC Writing Centres will help you:

  • Plan and strategize for your assignments
  • Understand your individual writing needs
  • Learn how to correct your own writing
  • Access helpful resources
  • Feel more confident about your writing skills

Our online Writing Guide provides tips, advice and information on how to get started, writing a resume or report, using grammar and punctuation effectively, and more.
