WoW Workshops

Professional communication
Writing academic papers
Research communication
Working with sentences

WoW (or Working on Writing) Workshops are interactive sessions that tackle both big-picture and sentence-level writing concerns to help participants strengthen their writing skills. All current students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend



Journal articles

WriteFest gives graduate students currently writing semester-long projects, such as theses, dissertations, ePortfolios, or pieces for publication, the time, space, and resources to work on their writing. Participants will join a community of writers for six sessions to discuss their projects, participate in information sessions, and receive feedback from Miller Writing Center consultants. 


Graduate Writing Partners

One-on-one support
Individualized consultations
Standing appointments each week

Graduate Writing Partners pairs graduate students with a Miller Writing Center consultant who works one-on-one with them to improve their writing abilities and become more effective communicators in their respective disciplines. Participants will benefit from consistent, semester-long, individualized consultations with graduate writing consultants and must commit to attending two one-hour standing appointments each week for the entire semester (two hours per week for 16 weeks). Regular attendance is mandatory. To be eligible for this program, you must have an advisor/professor who is willing to sponsor you.


Writing Groups

Accountability group
Write every week

A writing group can help you maintain a healthy writing routine, progress on writing projects, and get feedback on your writing from your colleagues. Graduate writing groups meet in-person or virtually throughout the semester. Please plan to devote about one hour of your time each week to this program—although groups are free to determine their own time commitments. Registration for writing groups opens at the beginning of each semester.
