Writing Groups

Are you looking for peer assistance on your writing? ASU Graduate Writing Centers can assist you in organizing a writing group that can offer you a way to stay motivated, meet due dates and receive meaningful feedback on your writing.

To be matched with a writing group, we recommend that you identify two or more fellow graduate students (in your same degree program or even in another degree program) with whom you would like to start a writing group.  Once you know of colleagues who are also interested in starting a writing group, you can contact UASP's Writing Centers at (480) 965-9072.  We will then work with you and your colleagues to schedule a workshop where you will learn about the writing group process and how to create a preliminary schedule to get started.

Workshops and Webinars

Throughout the fall and spring semesters, the Graduate Writing Centers will host special workshops and webinars on writing and statistics in graduate school across ASU's four campuses.  Additionally, we have online workshop recordings that are available.  For more information, please click on the links below.
