We have been working hard to add services to the research commons that will help UBC’s graduate students even more. At the end of October and going forward we added a new writing group that will offer feedback and support for graduate students to help them start and keep a writing habit. This is in addition to all of our other continuing services.
Thank you for all of your help in passing this information along!

Dr. Jo-ann Archibald, Q’um Q’um Xiiem, is Sto:lo and St’at’imc, Associate Dean for Indigenous Education, NITEP Director, and Professor in Educational Studies. She will share her scholarly writing experiences and guidance that she received from Indigenous Elders, storytellers, and Tricksters such as Coyote about Indigenous stories. In this session, she and those who attend will have an opportunity to share their approaches, concerns, and successes about the ways that Indigenous stories can shape our writing so that we address the heart, mind, body, and spirit in our scholarship. Dr. Archibald is the author of “Indigenous Storywork: Educating the Heart, Mind, Body, and Spirit” published by UBC Press in 2008.
The Coyote’s Keyboard Writing Series emphasizes ways of presenting and writing Indigenous scholarship. All are welcome to attend these sessions.
