The UWC recommends that graduate students working on thesis/dissertation chapters make repeat appointments with the same specialist throughout the semester. Please note, for the UWC to book repeat appointments on your behalf, be sure to register on WCOnline first at www.drew.mywconline.com.
To schedule repeat appointments for dissertation chapters, please review the specialist’s schedule on WCOnline at www.drew.mywconline.com and email email@example.com with the name of the Writing Specialist, day, time, and duration of appointment (30 minutes or one hour) (e.g., I see Jane Doe is available on Wednesdays from 2-4 pm at the UWC. I’d like to book an appointment with Jane the first and third Wednesday of the month from 2-3 pm.)
Graduate students are also welcome to book repeat appointments with writing specialists on a weekly basis. To do this, please email, firstname.lastname@example.org, and follow the instructions above.
Please read the UWC’s FAQs and policies here before making an appointment. Each student is limited to 3 hours per week per subject/course.
The weekly Graduate Writing meetup is a great way to set writing goals, work with a team of peers that will help hold you accountable for achieving those goals and have dedicated time and space to write.
Each week we’ll discuss ways you can build professional writing habits, work with models, enter the scholarly conversation, present evidence, give and seek feedback and work with style.
Light refreshments are served and writing prompts will help get your writing muscle moving.
Meet Ups are based on the book: Air & Light & Time & Space: How Successful Academics Write by Dr. Helen Sword
