The Graduate Writing Center offers many opportunities to help improve your writing this spring, including writing groups, two professional development workshops (see above in Professional Development Wednesdays section) scheduled one-on-one appointments, plus drop-ins at the Graduate Student Success Center.
Reviewing writing with a small group of peers helps to build familiarity with writing conventions and feedback skills that are necessary for success in higher education. The purpose of the writing groups is to enhance your ability to identify and implement purposeful writing conventions, and to use that understanding with your own writing and for providing peers with constructive feedback.
As a member of a Graduate Writing Group, you will spend an hour each week with Chris Nelson from the Graduate Writing Center. Activities for each week vary based on students’ needs, but are limited to:
The groups meet weekly starting in Week 2. The master's writing group meets Thursdays 3 to 4 p.m., April 12 - June 7. The doctoral group meets Wednesdays 4 to 5 p.m., April 11 through June 6. Space is limited to 12 students. You will be asked to commit to attending every week of the term and to bring a long-term writing project you are working on. Plan on spending two hours each week on Writing Group Activities: one hour for group meetings, and one hour of review outside of meetings.
The GWC serves graduate students by assisting with job applications, IRB materials, proposals, seminar papers, conference presentations, and – last, but not least – theses and dissertations. They provide one-on-one writing center sessions with fellow graduate students. Learn more and schedule an appointment.
