Grads & Postdocs, Join Us for the Fall Writing Series!

We'll do the coffee, you do the writing.
Writing in the presence of others is not only less lonely, but also leads to better accountability and productivity.  Research shows that successful writers set aside time to write every day (even a little). This bi-monthly writing group provides a designated time and place to write this semester. We’ll do the coffee and provide a quiet space; you do the writing! Come late or leave early. First come, first served. Please pre-register.

Online Tutoring

Can't make it into the Center? The Writing Center offers online tutoring!

We believe that the most effective writing tutorial is face-to-face, however we also want to accommodate writers who can't always make it to the Center for a tutoring appointment. (Because of a variety of reasons writers may prefer online tutoring—lack of transportation, last-minute questions, bad weather, discomfort in our space.) As an alternative to in-person appointments, we offer online tutoring using audio/video chat and an online workspace where writers and tutors can work on a project collaboratively.
