The goal of the Graduate Writing Center (GWC) is to provide free consultations to help graduate students produce successful academic writing by further developing effective writing skills. Writers from any discipline or department are encouraged to seek assistance with any stage of the writing process: from conception to composition to revision, from first to final draft. We are here to help writers develop strategies to improve their own writing. Remember that we will make suggestions concerning your writing, but final decisions should always be made by you, as the author of your work, and your director or committee, if applicable.
Graduate students are encouraged to make appointments for writing consultations well in advance of an assignment due date or document deadline. The calendar is set so that clients must schedule appointments one week in advance. If you have a more urgent deadline, you should contact Dr. Mischker directly.
Look out for announcements about workshops, writing groups, and boot camps specifically geared toward graduate student writing concerns. If you have an idea for a workshop or would like to start/participate in a writing group, please contact us.
We offer services for any assignment, including, but not limited to:
Theses and Dissertations
