Graduate Writing Support (GWS)

The Writing Center offers specialized support for graduate students writing lengthy manuscripts such as dissertations, theses, and publications.

Support is offered in individual sessions, workshops, write-ins, and a weekly dissertation writing group.

Graduate writing support is intended to supplement adviser meetings by providing writing feedback and guidance from an outside academic reader’s perspective.

GWS participants attending individual meetings commit to regularly scheduled meetings and submit work in advance of each session. This allows the consultant to provide a more thorough review and help the writer improve cogency, organization, analysis, and grammar and style. Past participants have mentioned that GWS is helpful for scaffolding project timelines and preparing for oral defenses and job talks. Graduate writing specialists have training and experience in academic and professional writing and assist graduate writers from all disciplines.

The capacity of the GWS program is limited and requires an intake interview to ensure that the writer’s needs and project match program objectives and resource availability.

Please contact us at for information about scheduling and other GWS questions.

Graduate students are also encouraged to seek writing advice and feedback by reserving fifty-minute sessions at our Norlin location.
