We work with graduate writers from all colleges and departments on any writing project, from seminar papers, to grant proposals, to dissertations. Some graduate students need targeted feedback, while others need accountability and support for tackling larger projects. We offer lots of ways to connect, write, revise, and develop approaches to writing that will carry you into your future.
Graduate Writing Groups
In addition to consultation and working one-on-one with writers, the Writing Center can help writers by facilitating writing groups and workshops. Some of our groups are lead by writing center consultants, but for others, we simply provide the setting and the support, while the group members take the lead.
Writing groups won’t all work the same way. Some writing groups will share drafts with one another and provide a necessary audience and means of critique during the writing process. Some will discuss their writing and struggles. Some will meet simply to serve as an external means of accountability for getting writing done, or as support to make sure that writing is not something that the members have to give up due to busy lives.
Individual Writing Consultations
Meet individually with a writing consultant to get feedback at any point in your writing process - from brainstorming to polishing. You can make an appointment or walk-in anytime we're open. You can also plan ahead by making an appointment at the link below.
Bring any materials you're working with (assignment sheets, notes, drafts, research) and come prepared with questions. If you're not sure where you'd like to start, our consultants will help you discover that, too.
