GSAS WRITING ADVISORs
Whether it is for term papers, grant applications, project proposals, or your thesis, one of the most challenging aspects of graduate school is the simple process of putting words on paper. Academic writing is a balancing act, requiring detailed and nuanced analyses while maintaining the focus on a driving central narrative, not to mention the challenges of engaging the reader in a compelling argument without losing the veneer of academic polish. Sometimes, a fresh pair of eyes is needed.
The Graduate School of Arts and Science is pleased to announce the availability of a writing advisor to provide feedback on your work, discuss writing ideas, and help you overcome your writer’s block. The advisor can help you brainstorm ideas, work on a manuscript’s structure and organization, and focus on academic style and language.
Please note that this is not a copy-editing service.
The advisor can focus on:
1. Grant applications
2. PhD petitions or proposals
3. Thesis chapters
4. Research papers or journal articles
5. Conference abstracts or presentations
For a 20-minute one-on-one consultation with an advisor, please email email@example.com to schedule an appointment. Be sure to include your name, department, degree program (Master’s or PhD), and the reason for the appointment. Note that it may take 3-5 business days until your appointment.
