Shut up and Write! may not work for everyone. If you are looking for the full gambit of support in the form of individual writing consultations, lunch-n-learn discussions about writing strategies, debriefing groups to celebrate accomplishment, goals and best practices then the Graduate Student Write-in workshop may interest you as well.

What to Expect:

Students will also have the opportunity to work with a writing consultant for individualized assistance.

A $40 refundable deposit is required to secure your slot. Additional details provided below.

  1. Development of a realistic strategic plan for completion of writing.
