Dear Colleagues,

We have a very small window of opportunity to propose a beautiful new space for our writing centre. If any of you have a photograph of a spacious welcoming writing centre to share, please send it—or a link to it—to me at jjewinsk@uwaterloo.ca. Of course, I’ll be happy to acknowledge your help!

Thank you very much for your assistance!
