Graduate Writing Events

If you are a graduate student at the Purdue main campus in West Lafayette, you are invited to join us for special programs designed to help you progress with the writing requirements of graduate school.

Intensive Writing Experience: Dissertation Writers

The purpose of the Intensive Writing Experience is to give doctoral students in good standing with their programs time to write or to revise their dissertations with support from Writing Lab staff. Participants will receive some writing instruction and support from Writing Lab staff, will spend significant time writing or revising their dissertations, and will network with other dissertation writers on campus. Intensive Writing Experiences are focused around three stages of the dissertation process: Getting Started, Drafting, and Revising.

Writers' Rooms

Writers' Rooms are dedicated times and places for graduate writers to work on their academic writing projects (e.g., scholarly articles, dissertations, etc.). Writers should plan to spend most of the two-hour block in independent writing; however, Writing Lab tutors will be available for very brief, limited consultations if concerns arise during the writing time.

Writers should bring whatever materials they need for successful work on their projects, including laptops, books and articles, style guides, research data, white board markers, pens, paper, etc.

All Writers' Rooms are held in HEAV 220. There is a maximum attendance of 15 people for every date.

Fall 2019 Schedule
