Fall Writing Series

Stack of paper with text reading, "Fall Writing Series for grads and postdocs. Meet your writing goals one page at a time."

Meet your writing goals one page at a time!

Writing in the presence of others is not only less lonely, but also leads to better accountability. This bi-weekly writing group provides time and space to write while caffeinated and also offers drop-in consultations for grads and postdocs with a Writing Center tutor. Come later or leave early. We'll do the coffee; you do the writing. Co-sponsored with the Graduate School Office of Professional Development.


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.
