Graduate Research/Write-In

Whether you are preparing for your comprehensive exams, writing your dissertation or dissertation prospectus, editing a paper for publication, writing a book review or fellowship application, we invite you to join us.


Additional Writing Support

Dissertation Distress/Thesis Torment Group

This group is for graduate students who are working on a dissertation or thesis. The focus is on problem solving, taking positive action, and staying motivated. It is open to students in all graduate programs.

Did you know that reading your paper aloud is one of the best ways to catch your own writing mistakes? It's a way to turn off that "mental autocorrect" function we have with our own writing. That's one of the reasons we have our clients read aloud at the Writing Center. #WritingWednesday
