Before you write, please check our practices, tips, and guidelines, and consider the following:

  • We love content relevant to academic communication (reading, writing, presenting) and graduate students. We value
    • a unique point of view,
    • posts reflecting the diversity of UVic students,
    • stories that illustrate difficulties and vulnerabilities,
    • posts with practical tips and ideas,
    • fresh topics,
    • humour,
    • content specific to UVic,
    • and motivating and inspirational themes.

Posts should be between 250-550 words and may be edited for clarity, grammar, and punctuation. If your blog contains images, please make sure to include the corresponding alt-text in your submission.

If your post is accepted for publication, please provide a good-quality jpeg photo of yourself and a short (2-3 sentence) biography.
