Support For Graduate Students
The MSU Writing Center offers ongoing support to students working on graduate-level writing in the following ways:
One-on-one appointments with tutors are available online or face-to-face. Graduate students may make appointments with graduate or undergraduate peer tutors. You can schedule a 45 or 90 minute appointment here.
Interdisciplinary Graduate Writing Groups
A small group of graduate students who meet regularly to work on improving their own writing and give feedback to others. The goal of a writing group is to create a community of graduate students who engage intellectually with one another on drafts. Writing groups are supportive, collaborative, non-evaluative spaces. If you are interested in joining a writing group, please complete this registration form. You will be contacted by email to set up an initial group meeting.
A weekly “write with us” time for grad students to work alongside each other. Hosted in the Wilson Hall 1-114 Writing Center on Fridays from 9 am-12 pm. Tutors are available to answer questions.
Workshops & Events
Looking for other ways to work on your writing? What about a science writing workshop or a writing retreat? See “Workshops and Events” for more information or contact Erin Strickland, at [email protected] or (406) 994-5314.
