Success in Graduate Writing Camp

Camp registration is open to any ASU student who is currently in a graduate certificate, master’s degree, or doctoral degree program or who will be enrolled by Fall 2018. The camp is intended for ASU graduate students who want an overview of the academic and research writing demands of graduate school.

The camp aims to introduce master’s and doctoral students to the foundational skills needed to succeed as a graduate-level writer. Students will learn about the stages of the writing process and about the habits, strategies, and techniques that successful academic writers in any discipline use throughout the writing process. This camp is intended for a general graduate-level audience and provides the underlying foundational skills that can be applied to discipline-specific writing.

Graduate students in any ASU graduate certificate, master’s degree, or doctoral degree program are eligible to register. The camp has 60 available seats, and a $50 program fee is required.  A limited number of scholarships, made possible by the Graduate & Professional Student Association (GPSA), may be provided to students upon completion of the camp. You will be notified if you receive a scholarship.

Thank you for your interest in the 2018 Success in Graduate Writing Camp. Due to the overwhelming response to this year’s camp, no new registrations will be accepted.
