The Center is staffed by senior doctoral candidates who have extensive experience editing, teaching, publishing their own work, and working with peers.
Consultants can help you with any part of the writing process, whether you are generating ideas for a seminar paper, preparing an article for publication, or drafting a dissertation chapter. They do not, however, provide proof-reading services.
Graduate students who would like to meet with a Graduate Writing Consultant should email firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.). Once you have emailed your paper, a consultant will contact you about setting up an appointment. Consultants require at least 24 hours to read the paper carefully and prepare for the appointment.
Students in online graduate programs may also utilize the Graduate Writing Center. Please contact a consultant via email for further assistance.
The Graduate Writing Consultants set up individual appointments with students. They meet with students in the Graduate Research Center in Poage Library, or at other convenient locations on campus.
