Writing and Public Speaking Consultations
All GSAS and professional school students are eligible for free consultations in the Graduate Writing Lab. Get one-on-one feedback on any writing project at any stage for the writing process. Or hone your public speaking skills by reserving time in our PitchVantage studio.
GWL Written and Oral Communication Workshops and Panels
Each semester, the Graduate Writing Lab offers programs on academic writing and communication. These programs bring together graduate and professional students, postdoctoral scholars, and researchers who want to learn about best practices in academic writing, publishing, and grant writing.
Writing Peer-Review Groups and Retreats
Peer-Review Groups provide a safe, low-stress environment to try out new ideas, share your written work in progress, and receive feedback at any stage of writing. Each writing retreat starts with a nutritious breakfast followed by 6-7 hours of writing with a break for lunch, coffee, and physical warm-up exercises.
