Writing Partner Program

What is the Writing Partner Program?

Writing can be an isolating experience, and one that feels daunting and never ending. Sometimes we want someone to look at our writing before we submit it to our advisors. By having a designated writing partner, you will have someone to go to for a brainstorming/discussion session. You can talk about how to structure your literature review or results section. You can make sure that the idea that you are trying to convey is actually reaching the reader.

The Writing Partner Program will create mutually beneficial relationships with the goal of becoming productive writers. This act of peer review is helpful for learning about different styles of writing, genre conventions, and more.

Upon request, a Graduate Writing Fellow can be made available during early meetings with your writing partner(s) in order to facilitate plans and goals that work for you. Additionally, you will be notified when there are writing workshops explicitly for the Writing Partner Program. WAC wants to provide resources to help you be successful with your writing goals!
