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. After requesting an appointment, writers set the agenda with a brief Cover Sheet form; during the consultation, GWCs can 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. Make an appointment.
Ongoing programs on topics such as maximizing effectiveness of writing, writing for different audiences, and starting do-it-yourself writing groups. Check the GRAD Guide Weekly for workshop dates throughout the year.
