Grad Wildcats Write supports graduate student writing success
This fall, the Graduate School, the English department and the Writing Center are partnering to offer Grad Wildcats Write, a series of events to support graduate students in taking charge of their writing skills and habits.
The series kicked off in August with an Acclimating to American Graduate-Level Writing workshop for international graduate students. A recording of the session is available for those who were unable to attend.
A Graduate-Level Writing Workshop for all graduate students from 2-3 p.m. on Sept. 13 in the Wildcat Chamber at the K-State Student Union. Theresa Merrick Cassidy, Writing Center assistant director, will provide graduate students with strategies to improve their writing skills and habits. Attendees will learn how to set up a writing schedule, navigate common writing errors, and revise their writing to maximize research impact. A recording of the session will be available on the Graduate Student Council Professional Development site.
On Sept. 29, graduate students can apply the skills they learn from the workshops by joining a peer writing group from 1:30-3:30 p.m. in 121 Eisenhower Hall. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. Additional writing groups will be scheduled in the fall semester. Input from workshop and writing group attendees will help determine dates and times of future writing groups.
Additional information about the Grad Wildcats Write series can be found on the GSC Professional Development site and in OrgCentral.
