Graduate Writing Center

The Graduate Writing Center is a resource to aid graduate student writers who desire to improve their writing skills. Consultants help with writing projects at all stages of the composition process—generating ideas, organizing, and revising—whether students are working on academic papers, reports, personal statements and applications, papers intended for publication, theses and dissertations, or grant proposals. The Graduate Writing Center is sponsored by the English Department and the Graduate School.

The Center is staffed by senior doctoral candidates who have extensive experience editing, teaching, publishing their own work, and working with peers. It is directed by Dr. Mary Lynn Klingman, Senior Lecturer in the English Department.

How It Works

Consultants can help you with any part of the writing process, whether you are generating ideas for a seminar paper or preparing a dissertation chapter for publication. They do not, however, provide proof-reading services.

Graduate students who would like to meet with a Graduate Writing Consultant should email gwc@baylor.edu. Please attach the paper or chapter you would like the consultant to review and indicate any specific issues you want to discuss (i.e., organizational problems, transitions, clarity, etc.). The consultant will then contact you to arrange a one-hour appointment.

Hours and Location

The Graduate Writing Consultants set up individual appointments with students. They meet with students at the Writing Center on the ground floor of Carroll Science, room G-06 or on the Second Floor of Moody Library in group carrel #2013.
