ELWS Listserv

The ELWS Listserv is a broadcast list designed to keep graduate students up to date about ELWS offerings. It is not a discussion list. We post ​one message a week containing the following types of information:

  • Workshops being held that week

  • Registration dates for courses

  • Course schedules

  • Opening and closing dates of the writing centre

  • Guest lectures being given by ELWS staff

To subscribe to the list, send an email to listserv@listserv.utoronto.ca (upper or lower case is acceptable). In the BODY of the message, type a command of the form:

subscribe elws-l firstname lastname

You will then receive a “Command Confirmation Request” email. You must reply to that email with "ok" written in the body of the email. This will complete the subscription process. Please note: If you have an automatic signature in your email, please remove it when sending and replying to listserv@listserv.utoronto.ca.

For a list of other commands (such as quitting a list or temporarily turning off delivery), please visit the “List Subscriber’s Guide” page on the Information Commons website.​​
