The Writing courses at King’s help students from all disciplines develop critical thinking and find their distinct voices as they polish their writing skills. Students benefit from taking Writing 1020F/G (Introduction to University Essay Writing) early in their careers. More mature writers enjoy the intense dialogic approach of Writing 2101F/G (Introduction to Expository Writing). Students who use English as a second language take Writing 1002F/G and 1022F/G, companion courses designed to offer extended practice in academic writing. English 3999F/G is a workshopped Creative Writing course open to students across the disciplines. Writing 2260F/G and 2301F/G, new courses that will involve active learning, will give students in advanced skills in writing for the caring professions, and in tutoring other writers.
The Department of English, French, and Writing also runs The Write Place, where students from all disciplines can get feedback and advice from trained tutors and specialists on any aspect of writing.
