Writing in Graduate School and beyond brings new challenges. Not only do writers encounter different settings and documents, they must develop sustainable, self-directed, and productive strategies for managing successful research communications, including:
- Understanding new audiences and formats such as proposals, abstracts, dissertations, and journal articles.
- Obtaining useful feedback on works in progress and incorporating it into revision.
- Establishing scholarly practices to maintain motivation and focus over months and years.
Whether you’re looking for a single consultation or sustained classroom instruction, the Writing Program offers a variety of opportunities for learning that will serve you as graduate students, postdocs, and professionals.
- One-on-one consultations in the Writing Center for feedback on any writing project as well as assistance in developing a sustained practice.
- Focused instruction through both individual workshops and half-term graduate courses in Writing in Science and Engineering (WSE), for quantitative researchers, and Writing in Social Sciences and Humanities (WSSH), for qualitative researchers.
- Opportunities for developing sustainable practices in community through Dissertation Boot Camps, Postdoc Proposal Writing Boot Camps, and Writing Days.
- Opportunities to mentor and teach as a Writing Center Fellow, WSE Fellow, and Quin Morton Teaching Fellow.
