Graduate Writing Center supports graduate student through...

The Graduate Writing Center is here to help!

The Graduate Writing Center supports UVM graduate students through

  • Free one-on-one and small group appointments with an experienced graduate writing consultant. Whether you want a sounding board and strategies for getting started on or seek feedback and approaches for revision and editing, visit go.uvm.edu/gradtutor to make an appointment.

  • Friday Forums for thesis and dissertation writers. Our next Friday Forum, April 8, 3:30-5 pm, in the Fulwiler Room (Writing in the Disciplines offices, Bailey Howe third floor), will focus on managing time, anxiety, and work-life balance through the writing of a dissertation or thesis. To RSVP, send a message to gradwriting@uvm.edu with your name and program. Put “Friday Forum” in the subject heading.

  • NEW: Dissertation and Thesis Jump Start! This four-day “camp,” June 20-23, is for thesis and dissertation writers who have an approved proposal and are getting to work on their first chapters. Each day—9-2 pm required, 2-5 pm optional, in the Writing in the Discipline’s Fulwiler Room—will feature workshops, lunch, and lots of writing time plus writing support from the Graduate Writing Center. Space is limited to 18 participants who can commit to attending all four days. (Each participant will also submit a $50 check payable to UVM that will be returned upon completion of the camp.) For more information or to request a space, send a message to gradwriting@uvm.edu.

The Graduate Writing Center welcomes writers at work on a wide range of writing projects—class assignments, articles, applications, proposals, presentations and posters too—for both academic and public audiences. Not a proofreading service, the Graduate Writing Center’s consultants help writers at all stages of the writing process and at all levels of experience further their skill and confidence through
  • analyzing the expectations and options of a writing assignment or task
  • talking through drafts and ideas
  • introducing approaches to getting–and working with–words on the page
  • introducing approaches to anticipating and addressing audience expectations and needs
    Our consultants hail from graduate programs across the campus and are prepared to work with writers from all disciplines. Consultations are free and most often take place in Waterman's Graduate Writing Center (Directions to 113D) or in one of the Bailey/Howe Library’s Writing Center locations (Directions toBailey/Howe 302D and Bailey/Howe 105). Learn more and make an appointment by visiting go.uvm.edu/gradtutor.
