Graduate Writing Consultants (GWCs) are available to meet one-on-one with graduate students and postdocs about scholarly works in progress, such as dissertation proposals or chapters, academic or conference papers, journal articles and other academic documents. Writers set the agenda; during the consultation, GWCs help writers devise a plan for moving forward by acting as a sounding board, mobilizing their expertise in analyzing academic writing, and suggesting revision techniques. Schedule an appointment.
