Graduate Writing Consultants

Graduate students are welcome to schedule an appointment or drop-in to meet with any research or writing consultant in the RWC. In addition, the are Graduate Writing Consultants (GWC) specifically designated to support graduate students in their professional development as writers and on their longer and more complex writing projects. To schedule an appointment with a GWC, go the RWC online schedule and select “Writing Consultation for Graduate Students” under consultation options. You can select whether to meet in person or online. If these appointment slots are full, we recommend joining the waiting list to be notified if there is a cancellation/opening on the GWC schedule or schedule an appointment with one of our other writing consultants.
