The Graduate School launched its new website last week, and the Graduate School Writing Center now has a page of its own on that site at http://www.gradschool.umd.edu/graduate-school-writing-center. The current WordPress site will remain live for the remainder of this semester as all of our data is transferred over, but please begin checking the new website for updated information.
You have a draft of that seminar paper that is due in a few weeks, but now what? How do you progress toward a next draft? Where do you begin to revise? How can you be an effective editor of your own work? Sign-up for this two-hour workshop, led by Writing Fellows from the Graduate School Writing Center, and find out. STUDENTS MUST HAVE A DRAFT OF THEIR WORK AT THE WORKSHOP, and space is limited to 12 students per workshop.
The Graduate School Writing Center is now offering a new consultation style–Brainstorming Consultations. For a description of this consultation type and instructions on how to book a Brainstorming Consultation, please visit our Request a Consultation page. Please also be sure to check out our updated Consultation Policies before scheduling a consultation!
While we determine demand, we are only offering 2 Brainstorming Consultations per week, so be sure to get on the schedule early if you are interested in one of these consultations!
RESEARCH AND WRITING BOOTCAMP MATERIALS AVAILABLE!
The Graduate School Office of Writing Initiatives will offer an extended Writing at the Graduate Level workshop beginning on March 5, 2015. The aim of the seven-week workshop is to help students refine their writing at the graduate level through guided understanding of writing in their disciplines. Sessions will cover topics including moving from reading to writing, progressing from idea to argument to completed draft, developing cohesion in writing, learning effective revision techniques, and learning to be an effective peer editor. The interdisciplinary workshop will revolve around the writing of participants along with some readings and is intended for graduate students at the master’s level (doctoral candidates who have not yet taken comprehensive exams may apply). The workshop is limited to twelve students. For more information and to learn how to apply, see ter.ps/wrgradlevel or contact Linda Macri at firstname.lastname@example.org.
