Enrollment is open for fall term Graduate Writing Groups in the OSU Graduate Writing Center. Facilitated by Graduate Writing Consultants, you will meet each week with other graduate students to work on your written projects. Activities vary based on student needs, but groups mainly focus on purpose-based peer review, individual writing time, and conversations about meeting formal expectations of scholarly writing and communication.
Writing groups start week 2 of the term.
(Please note, if you have signed up for a Graduate Writing Group in the past you may have to clear your browsing history or clear your cache to reach the fall enrollment form).
