GSSC Events and Resources


GradWrite is a week-long writing workshop that provides graduate students uninterrupted time to work on their dissertation, thesis, or project, learn new writing strategies, and connect with other graduate students. This workshop aims to provide a comfortable space and encouraging support to get your writing goals accomplished. A writing consultant may be available for individual consultations on any aspect of your writing. Additional (optional) time to work is available each day. This event is sponsored by the Graduate College, the Graduate Student Success Center and the Writing Center.

GradWrite With Me (Online)

GradWrite With Me is our version of GradWrite that is available for online students that will happen right alongside the in-person workshop. Students will sign into a Google Hangout Meeting every morning where the participants attending virtually, and possibly the ones attending in-person too, will be in a group together. There will be the presentation in the morning and then everyone can write while still in the Google Hangout Meeting. If you have a question or need help with something, your peers will be right there with you to help you through whatever you need. Our writing coaches will be available for students to set up a one-on-one session via video call with for individualized help as well.
