Sweetland offers face-to-face writing help for graduate students in Writing Workshop. This service allows you to meet one-to-one with an experienced faculty consultant at any stage of writing, from getting started to final revisions. You can get help with understanding assignments, generating ideas, developing arguments, organizing and structuring, using evidence and sources, and clarifying your expression. To get a sense of what to expect, please read our policies before attending your first Writing Workshop session.
International grad students: If you are an international or multilingual graduate student who would prefer to meet with a second language specialist, please schedule an appointment with the English Language Institute's Graduate Writing Clinic.
Post-docs, faculty, and staff are not eligible for Writing Workshop consultations. We do offer for-pay Freelance Writing Services. International post-docs and international faculty/staff are also eligible for English Language Institute's Graduate Writing Clinic on a limited basis.
