WC Undergraduate Writer

 

All writers need feedback, sounding boards to try out ideas on, and a second pair of eyes to help refine our writing. Our consultants are other writers, here to answer questions and be those readers you can trust. We read anything you're writing, from history papers, to Senior capstone projects, to web design projects and speeches. If you're writing it, we want to work with you on it.

Individual Writing Consultations

Meet individually with a writing consultant online to get feedback at any point in your writing process - from brainstorming to polishing. 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.

Organization of a Research Report Workshop Series

This workshop series provides guidance on the organization of a research report. Each session focuses on a different section of the report. All four sessions are open to OU graduate students. We encourage you to attend all four but you are welcome to come to any combination of the sessions. All sessions take place in Bizzell Library, Lower Level 1 (LL1), Room 123, from 9:30am – 11:00am.

 

Part 1: Research Writing, Abstract, and Introduction Exploration (Friday, Feb. 11, 2022): In this session, we cover the basics of beginning to write a research paper, how to write the abstract, and the elements of a good introduction.

 

Part 2: Literature Review Exploration (Friday, Mar. 4, 2022): In this session, we discuss the purpose of a literature review. We also examine the process for conducting a literature review, including finding, organizing, and synthesizing sources.

 

Part 3: Methodology/Methods and Results Exploration (Friday, Mar. 25, 2022): In this session, we look at the common elements of the methods section and how to write up your results.

 

Part 4: Discussion and Conclusion Exploration (Friday, Apr. 8, 2022): In this session, we focus on the final two sections of the research report—the discussion and conclusion. We talk about the differences between the two sections to help you write each one.
